Chief Executive Resigns

10 April 2008
Chief Executive Resigns

The Chief Executive of Federated Farmers, Annabel Young has resigned.

Announcing this today the President of the Federation, Charlie Pedersen said Annabel Young has made a significant contribution to improving the overall structure, general management and professional perception of the Federation

“She came into the role when change was required and she did this very well”, said Mr Pedersen.

Annabel Young is taking up the role of Chief Executive of the Pharmacy Guild.

“It is a great opportunity to build on what I have learnt at Federated Farmers. Like the Federation, the Guild is an organisation of voluntary members so it has many of the same issues”.

Annabel Young said she has thoroughly enjoyed her time at Federated Famers of New Zealand and the challenges that it has offered. She said working with two Presidents, Tom Lambie and Charlie Pedersen has been great, and she regrets not being able to work with the new president who will be elected in late June.

The process of recruiting a new Chief Executive will begin immediately.
