Welcome Richard Braund – Angus Brand Verification Officer

December 3, 2018 10:54 am

Angus Australia is pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Braund in the role of Angus Brand Verification Officer

Richard is originally from Ebor, NSW where his family has had predominantly Angus beef breeding properties for several years.

Richard has a Bachelor of Agriculture and Resource Economics from the University of New England in Armidale, which saw him gain an understanding in the dynamics, policies and financials of the agribusiness sector.

Richard comes from a background across several industries, working in most parts of the grains, cotton, beef and sheep supply chains.  His previous experience working with AACo has assisted in expanding him into northern livestock operations, and then furthermore into working at Livingstone Processing Plant outside Darwin, NT.  Following this, Richard managed a beef and sheep processing plant in Esperance, WA, starting on a Tier 2 operation.

“I look forward to working for Angus Australia, an organisation that has deep roots in the beef industry and a long history with producers, marketing the best beef in the world,” Richard says.

“Further work in the agricultural sector will see me greatly expand my understanding of agriculture and the beef industry from paddock to plate.”

Richard’s key focus in his role for Angus Australia is to assist brands in the Angus Brand Verification program, in maintaining the high standard, integrity and quality of the Angus brand through collaboration with the supply chain.

Angus Australia looks forward to introducing Richard into the Commercial Supply Chain team.  Richard can be contacted at richard.braund@angusaustralia.com.au.
