Appointment of New Director
Sarah Courtney, Minister for Primary Industries and Water
New director for Tasmanian Irrigation
The Hodgman Liberal Government continues to deliver on the State’s most comprehensive plan to turbo-charge Tasmanian agriculture and create jobs in regional communities through irrigation development.
The expertise within Tasmanian Irrigation and its partnerships with farmers has been integral to this success and we welcome Mr Chris Thompson as a new TI Director.
Mr Thompson was formerly managing director and director of firms Macquarie Franklin and Agricultural Resources Management and has extensive consulting experience in agribusiness developments, rural water resources management, irrigation systems and dam construction and operations.
He is well regarded in the Tasmanian farming and agricultural sectors and has held a number of chairman and director positions with irrigation boards both on a national and international scale.
Mr Thompson’s expertise will further complement the skills within the current Tasmanian Irrigation Board and we look forward to his valuable contribution.
The Government also sincerely thanks outgoing Director, Roger Gill for his valuable input and considerable service since TI’s inception.
