The Australian Made Campaign, the not-for-profit organisation that administers and promotes Australia’s registered country-of-origin certification trade mark, held its annual general meeting today, where four members of its Board of Directors were re-elected and confirmed.

Kate Carnell, Chief Executive of the Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI) network, was confirmed as a Director after filling the causal vacancy created by the resignation of former ACCI Chief Executive, Peter Anderson.

David Gray, Managing Director of David Gray & Co. Pty Ltd; Neil Summerson, Company Director and former Chairman of Bank of Queensland; and Robert Hutchison, State Manager of ParexDavco Australia; were also re-elected, according to the Board’s rotation policy.

The Australian Made Campaign’s national Board consists of ten Directors, elected by the organisation’s 11 members – the ACCI and its network of State and Territory Chambers, and the National Farmers’ Federation.

The board for 2015;

  • Glenn Cooper AM (Chairman), Chairman, Coopers Brewery Ltd (Adelaide)
  • Allyn Beard (Deputy Chairman), Company Director, A.H. Beard Pty Ltd (Sydney)
  • Neil Summerson FCA (Treasurer), Company Director and former Chairman, Bank of Queensland (Brisbane)
  • Nicki Anderson, MD, Demo Plus (Melbourne)
  • Kate Carnell AO, CEO, Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (Canberra)
  • Alf Cristaudo, Former Chairman, Canegrowers Australia (Townsville)
  • David Gray AM, MD, David Gray & Co. Pty Ltd (Perth)
  • Robert Gerard AO, Executive Chairman, Gerard Corporation Pty Ltd (Adelaide)
  • Robert Hutchinson, State Manager, ParexDavco (Australia) Pty Ltd (Brisbane)
  • Michele Levine, CEO, Roy Morgan Research (Melbourne)

No changes to the organisation’s constitution were made at the AGM.

This is an exciting time for the Australian Made, Australian Grown (AMAG) kangaroo logo, which has just been registered as a certification trade mark in Singapore, following its recent registrations in the USA in 2007, China in 2012 and South Korea in 2013, and upcoming launch of hundreds of branded stores in China.

Australian Made Campaign Chief Executive, Ian Harrison, said that the organisation benefitted greatly from the strategic direction provided by its Board of Directors on the marketing and compliance programs behind the logo, as did the businesses registered to use it as a result.

“More than 2000 businesses are using this symbol on approximately 15,000 products sold around the world; to clearly identify their products and produce as genuinely Australian,” Mr Harrison said.
