Gage Roads Brewing Company founder Peter Nolin has been appointed CEO of the WA Farmers Federation.
WAFarmers president Dale Park said Mr Nolin has been recruited to drive the organisation in a direction better suited to serving members and the greater agricultural community, in conjunction with the group's branding and strategic review process Recharge.Reconnect.
Mr Nolin established Gage Roads Brewing Company in 2002 and has previously worked as general manager for an IT company and the principal at his own consulting firm, Nolin & Associates.
He has most recently been CEO of the Fremantle Chamber of Commerce.
“Agriculture delivers $7.5 billion to the WA economy each year and is the backbone of regional WA – meaning it deserves a much greater standing within the community,” Mr Nolin said.
“As the largest representative body for WA agriculture, WAFarmers intends to ensure that members’ and industry’s needs are understood and addressed.”
