Dream come true at Evans & Tate

EVANS & Tate’s new executive general manager, Phillip Osborne, has never lived in Perth and never owned or managed a vineyard.

He readily admits to dreaming of being in the wine industry, however.

“I’ve always found it extraordinarily exciting and enjoy the product,” Mr Osborne said.

“The Australian wine industry is a dynamic industry, going through a rapid expansion. There are opportunities associated with that, particularly for companies with strong brands and a good business focus.

“And I think Evans & Tate is one company well positioned to take advantage of the opportunities.”

Mr Osborne is no stranger to agriculture.

A former managing director of Farm Pride Foods and Mount Gambier Cooperative Dairy, Mr Osborne has most recently provided consultant management services to agribusinesses, specialising in business system implementation and strategic planning.

Although he also has some export, merger and acquisition experience, it is his management expertise Mr Osborne believes will best complement what he regards as well-developed business systems already in place at Evans & Tate.

Evans and Tate chairman and chief executive officer Franklin Tate said Mr Osborne would add management depth to the company during a time of acquisitions and new market growth.

Mr Osborne will move from Melbourne to take up his new position early in September.
