Company director and former WA attorney general Cheryl Edwardes has been appointed as the new chairperson for agribusiness CropLogic while St John of God Health Care has appointed Azure Capital managing partner Adrian Arundell to its board.

Mrs Edwardes replaces John Beattie, who had served in the role for the past two years.

Her ministerial career also included serving as Minister for Environment and Labour Relations, and she was the member for Kingsley for nearly 17 years.

Currently a senior advisor at FTI Consulting, Mrs Edwardes serves as a director at Atlas Iron, AusCann Holdings and Vimy Resources and is commissioner at the WA Football Commission.

CropLogic managing director Jamie Cairns said the company was delighted to add Mrs Edwardes expertise to its board.

“CropLogic has been working to expand its internal capabilities over the last quarter to support its global growth ambitions and we are excited to build on this momentum with Mrs Edwardes support,” he said

“Her experience and leadership will further strengthen our board and complement our existing expertise.”

Mrs Edwardes said she was excited to take on the new role.

“Trends in the food production industry indicate that world food production will have to increase dramatically in the coming years to feed an increasing world population,” she said

“I feel CropLogic is uniquely placed to take advantage of these trends particularly in the US and Australia.

Shares in CropLogic, which listed on the ASX in 2017, were off 10.2 per cent at 7 cents each at 2pm AEDT.

Meanwhile Mr Arundell, who is a council member of John XXIII College and on The University of Notre Dame board, was appointed to the St John board on February 19.

Mr Arundell was a Business News 40Under40 winner in 2009.

St John chairman Tony Howarth welcomed Mr Arundell’s appointment and said his understanding of the changing landscape of Australia’s private health care system would be particularly valued.

“Adrian is a well-known business leader in Western Australia and his credentials in leading transformation across a vast range of industries will be an asset to our organisation,” he said.
