NEW COMMERCIALISATION MANAGER FOR PORKCRC



Pork CRC has announced the appointment of Dr Rob Wilson as Manager of
Commercialisation and Adoption.



Dr Wilson will maximise the opportunities and income from Pork CRC projects
for the benefit of the CRC and the Australian pork industry.



He will ensure all projects are reviewed for their potential intellectual
property and commercialisation opportunities. Already, all research
proposals to Pork CRC must include a business plan and all researchers must
focus on maximising value by delivering their findings into the 'hands' of
pork producers



Welcoming the appointment, Pork CRC CEO, Dr Roger Campbell, said Dr Wilson's
many years of high level experience in the pork production sector would help
keep the CRC on a sound commercial footing.



"Rob is a very well regarded animal nutritionist, with experience extending
into environmental and waste management, intensive animal production, R&D
funding, management and strategic planning," Dr Campbell said.



"He also has an excellent working knowledge of the food and livestock
industry through his 30 years with George Weston Foods Meat and Dairy
Division as General Manager of Wandalup Farms, a 4000 sow piggery now owned
by the Craig Mostyn Group.



"Rob's work helped develop Wandalup Farms into one of Australia's most
innovative and efficient large scale pig production facilities. Along the
way he transformed an intractable environmental waste management problem
into a state-of-the-art model of sustainable waste management," Dr Campbell
said.



Dr Wilson's wide experience collaborating with industry, the research
community and federal, state and local governments would help further
develop Pork CRC's ability to deliver real benefits and innovations
particularly relevant to Australian pork producers.



He will work closely with Pork CRC independent Board Director, corporate
adviser and lawyer, Andrew Maughan, who chairs Pork CRC Adoption and
Advisory Committee.
