Brian Walsh to step down as Chairman of Wine Australia

Brian Walsh has announced his intention to step down as Chairman of Wine Australia on 30 September 2019. Walsh was appointed the Chairman of Wine Australia after overseeing the merger of the Grape and Wine Research and Development Corporation (GWRDC) and the Australian Wine and Brandy Corporation (AWBC) in 2014.

“His extensive wine industry experience and consultative nature have been vital ingredients in the directions taken by, and the success of, Wine Australia across compliance, marketing and R&D. I have worked closely and collaboratively with Brian over the past three years and would like to acknowledge his enormous contribution. I wish Brian all the best for the future and I am looking forward to working with his successor,” said Sandy Clark, Chairman of Australian Grape and Wine Incorporated.

The Minister for Agriculture, Senator the Hon Bridget McKenzie will announce Walsh’s replacement in due course.
