Chief Executive Officer

Plant Health Australia (PHA) is the national coordinator of the government-industry partnership for plant biosecurity in Australia. The purpose of PHA is to develop and maintain a strong biosecurity partnership between governments and industry that minimises pest impacts on Australia, enhances market access and contributes to industry and community sustainability.

The incumbent Chief Executive Officer (CEO) will finish his term in early July 2020. PHA is therefore aiming to select and appoint a new CEO to commence at that time and ensure a smooth transition to a new leadership regime.

The CEO will be expected to work closely with the Board and lead the organisation into the future, building on the high standards of corporate governance, service delivery and stakeholder engagement that have been established. The Board will expect the CEO to focus on strategy development and implementation, and building strong and effective relationships with plant industry leaders, Ministers, senior government officials and the scientific community. The CEO will also be responsible for leading and inspiring a highly professional team of people with a broad range of skills in plant biosecurity.
