CRAIG Mostyn Group (CMG) chief executive officer David Lock is leaving the company to take up a position with another agribusiness company, Style Limited.
Mr Lock, who is qualified as a chartered accountant, has worked for CMG for the past 19 years, serving as CEO since 2004.
Style executive chairman Peter Hutchinson said: “We are delighted to have attracted someone of David’s calibre to lead the company through what is shaping to be a very exciting period. It is very significant for the company at this stage of its development to be able to attract a senior figure in the Australian agribusiness landscape.
“David’s decision to join the company and be responsible for driving the business and its strategy is a strong endorsement of the early efforts to establish a high quality, diversified agribusiness platform based out of WA.”
Mr Lock said he is excited by the new challenge and looking forward to growing the business over the coming years.
“There is increasing demand for high quality Australian produce and that bodes well in terms of where Style is positioning itself,” he said.
“The vertically integrated business model the company is establishing will also play an important part in ensuring its success, in my view.”
Mr Lock will commence with Style on January 1, 2016, at which time Mr Hutchinson intends to move to the role of non-executive chairman of Style.
