Our people

PHA has a skills based Board of eight Directors. Apart from the Chief Executive Officer, all Directors are non-executive positions.

Board Directors are selected with the involvement of both industry and government members. Board Directors provide a balance of skills, knowledge and experience in areas including industry operations, plant industry production, marketing, domestic and international plant health policy and government policy processes, plant health management, international trends in plant health practices, strategic planning, business and financial management, and economics.

PHA has staggered terms of appointment of two and four years for Board Directors, as a means of ensuring continuity and retaining corporate knowledge and experience within the organisation.

A team of staff members provide support to the Board, and work to achieve outcomes for members through implementation of the Strategic Plan and associated Annual Operational Plan.
