Richard Carn

A tireless worker for the cause and one of Southern Agventure’s foundation directors has stepped down from the Board.

Richard Carn was involved in the establishment of the company from the very beginning as a member of the Lockhart Development Group Steering Committee, formed in 2008, a member of the Company Structure and Corporate Governance Sub-committee and the Joint Venture Sub-committee.

Over the past five years, Richard has served as a non-executive director on the SAV Board, and has also been Deputy Chairman and, since March 2014, Chairman of Southern Ag Grain.

He will remain in that position until the sale of SAV’s stake in the joint venture to Emerald is finalised.

At the 2014 Annual General Meeting on 18 December, SAV Chairman, David Lamont, thanked Richard for his long-time service to Southern Agventure.

“Richard’s contribution had been outstanding and much appreciated and he will be greatly missed,” Mr Lamont said.
