Livecorp's chief executive officer, Cameron Hall, will leave the live export sector's service delivery company at the end of June to take up a new role with national rural agency, Landmark.
Mr Hall has advised the LiveCorp board that he will relocate to Melbourne to take up a newly formed position as Landmark’s General Manager, Agency where he will be responsible for all agency business including livestock, wool, financial services, insurance and real estate.
“The role will provide me with a fantastic opportunity to utilise and expand upon the skills I have gained through this and previous roles, while remaining involved in Australian agriculture,” he said in a message to stakeholders.
Mr Hall, pictured left, has had a lifelong connection with rural industry having grown up in Central Western NSW. His career path has taken him through the livestock sector, starting as a jackaroo and later moving on to farm management. He was a member of the re-formed Elders Graduate program in 1996-1997 and at one point was Elders Livestock Manager for Victoria. He later became more closely involved with the live export trade as a principal exporter through Elders International and Fares Exports.
Six years ago Mr Hall was appointed chief executive of LiveCorp. He quickly gained a reputation as a solid administrator and skilful communicator within an industry sector sometimes faced with broader community challenges and a hostile and well-resourced animal activist network.
A recruitment process has been launched to find a new CEO for the live export sector’s service delivery company – a challenging role given the particular sensitivities over animal welfare issues faced within the industry.
