The Northern Territory Cattlemen’s Association has appointed Will Evans as its new chief executive officer.
Mr Evans is a young industry leader who has been actively involved in representing the northern cattle sector on a range of northern cattle issues in recent years.
He worked in policy development with Cattle Council of Australia based in Canberra, before taking on the role of chief executive officer of the Northern Territory Live Exporters Association based in Darwin in 2018.
In recent times he has worked with Governments at all levels on behalf of industry to keep cattle transport logistical pathways open and moving across borders and out of export ports through COVID lockdowns and to find a workable solutions to new ASEL operating regulations introduced late last year for the live export industry by the Federal Government.
Former CEO Ashley Manicaros left the NTCA in November and the role as been filled since that time in an acting capacity by NTCA executive officer Romy Carey.
Mr Evans will formally commence in the role in the week leading up to the NTCA conference in Alice Springs in late March.
