Murray Irrigation announces Board election results
Votes have been counted and the result is in – Murray Irrigation shareholders have re-elected three local farmers to the company’s Board of Directors.
Ryan Gleeson, Noel Baxter and Steve Fawns have been re-elected to a four-year term to represent the needs of shareholders as the company continues to seek improved water certainty for the region.
Phil Snowden, Board Chairman said the result recognises the stability and experience the Directors bring to the company and will enable the Board to keep delivering on its 2025 Strategic Plan.
“The Board announced its 2025 Strategic Plan earlier in the year and has been working hard to deliver on its three platforms; Efficient and reliable water delivery; Improving water security; and Attracting investment in the region.
“We’ve been working closely with the relevant ministers, government departments and agencies to achieve this and have made significant in-roads.
“Of particular note, is our work with the MDBA to secure their use of the Mulwala Canal to deliver river operations water more efficiently downstream, relieving pressure on the Barmah Choke while delivering returns for shareholders,” Phil said.
“The use of our canal is a win for the environment, a win for irrigators and a win for our shareholders.
“Commercial arrangements such as this allow Murray Irrigation to deliver water through products such as our Allocation Advance, Sustainability Product and Resource Distribution.
“Over the past two months, this has helped deliver 90GL of productive water into our footprint, despite the ongoing zero allocation announcements.
“The Board can now continue its work advocating and delivering for shareholders and customers,” Phil said.
