The Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) Board of Directors announced their decision to advertise the position of Chief Executive Officer.
VFF President David Jochinke said VFF CEO Stephen Sheridan’s contract expires at the end of December 2020. It is therefore appropriate and good corporate governance that the Board test the market accordingly.
“Stephen has worked with the Board on a range of issues including strategic considerations and implications as we look to adapt and grow the VFF as an organisation,” Mr Jochinke said.
“Stephen has done an outstanding job in managing the affairs of the VFF for nearly 3 years and it is in recognition of that we hope Stephen will submit an expression of interest for the CEO role moving forward.”
“While we test the market, Stephen will continue as CEO including responsibility for a number of significant reform initiatives and milestones.”
Mr Jochinke said the Board takes this opportunity to commend Stephen for his stewardship of the organisation to date especially through the difficulty associated with the current global pandemic.
The position of VFF CEO will be open for applications from Friday (7 August 2020).
