The Alliance Group board has unanimously voted to appoint current director Mark Wynne to be the co-operative’s new chairman, replacing Murray Taggart, who has been chairman for the past 10 years.

Mr Wynne will assume the chairman role from April 12 this year.

His extensive experience in agribusiness includes 20 years in the dairy industry. He stepped down as chief executive of Ballance Agri-Nutrients co-operative in September last year.
