Australian Dairy Farmers (ADF) Media Release - 4th July 2017
We are very pleased to announce Mr David Inall as the Australian Dairy Farmers (ADF) Chief Executive Officer (CEO). He joined the ADF team on Monday 3rd July.
With a strong background working with industry and government on strategic policy matters, including animal welfare and sustainability, Mr Inall comes into the role after four years as the Senior Vice-President of United Egg Producers based in Atlanta, Georgia, United States.
Having commenced his policy career with the NSW Dairy Farmers' Association, Mr Inall has also held the position of Chief Executive Officer with the Cattle Council of Australia (Canberra), and Livestock Export Manager (Asia & Australia) for Meat & Livestock Australia/Livecorp (Sydney).
Mr Inall has a Bachelor in agricultural science from the University of Western Sydney and is a graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.
Mr John McQueen, who took on the role as a short-term replacement, is available until Friday 7th July.
Mr McQueen started his career in 1982 as the Executive Officer of the Australian Dairy Herd Improvement Scheme, with the responsibility to set up and operate the first national genetic evaluation system for the Australian dairy industry.
When Mr McQueen returned in 2016 as the interim CEO, he has again been actively instrumental as ADHIS moves to its next phase as part of DataGene. He was also played a key role in the development of the first dairy industry Code of Practice for contractual arrangements.
We would like to thank Mr McQueen for his hard work and dedication to ADF as we welcome Mr Inall to the role as CEO.
