“The Wine Australia Board is deeply grateful for Andreas’ leadership and his dedication to the Australian wine sector over many years and we wish him well for his future endeavors”, states the organisation.
"I’m so proud of the role that Wine Australia plays to support the sector and I wish it every success for the future under new leadership", said Mr. Clark.
Wine Australia will engage an external recruitment firm to undertake a national selection process for the next Wine Australia CEO. The recruitment will commence in March 2021.
