New Appointment to AGMARDT General Manager Position

AGMARDT has secured the services of a well-respected and knowledgeable agricultural businessman. The Chairman of the AGMARDT Board of Trustees, Jeff Grant, is pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Malcolm Nitschke to the position of General Manager.

“We are very excited to have Malcolm join our team, his previous experience in the agri sector at both corporate and farm levels will be of huge benefit to AGMARDT as we continue to develop and implement our new strategic plan,” says Jeff Grant.
