PERTH, AUSTRALIA — The CBH Group announced on Aug. 13 the appointment of Scott Wallace to the CBH Grain Eastern Australian team as a regional manager for Northern New South Wales (NSW) and Queensland.
Wallace joins the team from his previous role within the CBH Group as business relationship manager (BRM) servicing the Esperance region in Western Australia (WA).
Wallace will be based in Narrabri and operate in a team of five regional managers committed to providing growers in Eastern Australia with information on CBH Grain’s innovative pools and competitive cash pricing options, as well as information from the market and feedback from our international customers.
Regional managers provide a valuable source of information for growers and provide valuable feedback to marketers throughout the year on production and marketing issues. This feedback allows CBH Group to improve its existing products and develop new marketing options to better meet growers' needs.
Wallace has extensive experience in agriculture across Australia which started at the family farm in Central West NSW.
Upon completing a Bachelor of Rural Science degree at the University of New England, Wallace moved into agronomy working in Bourke and Coonamble in NSW before moving to Esperance in WA. His professional career progressed to the grain marketing sector after securing a position with CBH Grain as a BRM in 2008.
CBH noted that Wallace has worked closely with the growers in Esperance region for a number of years and looks forward to continuing to build relationship with growers in his home state and investigate solutions that help fulfill their requirements.
“The grower focus of CBH makes it an easy choice for considering opportunities within the business. I am really looking forward to extending some of the CBH advantages to growers in NSW and Queensland,” Wallace said.
