Australia’s peak body for agritech, the Australian Agritech Association (AusAgritech), has appointed Tracey Martin as its new Chief Executive Officer.
Tracey brings over twenty years of experience in strategic policy development and execution and stakeholder engagement in various industries, as well as being an agricultural producer. She has chaired international forums on financial policy in the EU, worked for APRA and the Bank of England/PRA, and has an MA from the London School of Economics in Diplomacy and International Strategy.
Tracey is also a Nuffield Scholar 2020 and a member of the Cattle Council of Australia (CCA) Policy Council – also being the (CCA) representative to the National Farmers Federation Sustainable Development & Climate Change Committee.
Andrew Coppin, Chairman of AusAgritech said Tracey’s appointment is a giant leap forward as the association embarks on its next growth phase. “The appointment of our full-time CEO will turbocharge the association’s mission to build an agritech sector that supports the achievement of the $100 billion national target for agriculture and the development of a $20-billion-a-year industry of technology exports and opportunities.
“Tracey’s Australian and international experience in stakeholder engagement, strategic policy direction, and advocacy in the financial services sector complements her current position on the land in Queensland, making her the perfect appointment to take the Australian agritech sector forward,” he said.
“Whether it be supporting Australian agriculture’s vision to become a $100 billion industry by 2030, or as a critical component in the Australian Government’s Long Term Emissions Reduction Plan, it’s obvious that technology will be the great enabler.”
