Last Friday, long serving MINTRAC CEO, Jenny Kroonstuiver entered retirement and this week I am pleased to be able to announce the appointment of Mick Crouch as Jenny’s replacement.
Mick will be responsible for the successful execution of MINTRAC’s four key areas of activity
- Managing the Australian meat processing training system;
- supporting industry workforce development;
- providing industry representation on matters related to education and training, and
- promoting and conducting research and development extension and adoption.
Mick brings to MINTRAC over 30 years of commercial experience across numerous industry sectors and arrives having recently worked with the Australian Institute of Training and Development as its Head of Program Delivery. Prior to that, he led large global operations as the Country Head at Infosys where he had oversight of a global delivery centre in Sydney with 120 staff. He also spent time with the NSW Government’s Electricity Utility Ausgrid, shortly after its privatisation and led the creation of the internal peoples’ Services function. Mick has a broad business background having founded and managed a successful professional services and management consultancy business for 10 years during the 2000’s.
He is an honorary Board Member and Non-Executive Director on various NFP organisations and holds formal tertiary qualifications in Human Resource Management and Training and Assessment.
We undertook a very thorough search, recruitment and selection process to identify a suitable candidate to fill the role. I and the MINTRAC Board have confidence that Mick possesses the necessary leadership skills and acumen to consolidate and enhance the future success of MINTRAC in providing the vital advice, representation and services the Australian industry requires of it.
I also acknowledge the role Jenny played in that success over the past 16 years and her co-operation in ensuring a smooth transition to the commencement of this new era for the organisation.
Please join MINTRAC in welcoming Mick to the industry.
