The Foreign Minister has today announced the appointment of Mr Andrew Campbell as incoming CEO of ACIAR. Andrew has been chosen after a comprehensive search and selection process, led by the Secretary of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, supported by the Chair of ACIAR’s Commission and President of ACIAR’s Policy Advisory Council. He will commence his five year term as CEO on 31 July 2016. When available, the Minister’s Media Release will be here - http://foreignminister.gov.au/Pages/default.aspx

It has been a privilege for me to have been at the helm of ACIAR over the past seven years. Nevertheless it is time for a change and I am confident that under Andrew’s stewardship ACIAR will be an even more effective contributor to the productivity and sustainability of agriculture, for the benefit of developing countries and Australia.

With regards

Nick Austin

Chief Executive Officer
