Chief Executive Strategy & Engagement

As Chief Executive Strategy and Engagement at the Cooperative Research Centre for Developing Northern Australia, Anthony is responsible for leading the CRCNA’s strategy, engagement, business development and impact monitoring priorities. He is also responsible for water development research that de-risks and brokers opportunities for agricultural development across Northern Australia.

Based at the CRCNA’s headquarters in Townsville on Wulgurukaba and Bindal Country, Anthony brings a wealth of experience supporting private and corporate business, research organisations, universities, government and natural resource management organisations across agriculture and community health initiatives.

Anthony comes from a local family-owned agricultural enterprise and understands the connection between the land and people. He aims to apply practicality in research, especially as Northern Australia adapts to climate resilience and demonstrates that development and healthy eco-systems can co-exist.

Anthony has a Bachelor of Pharmacy, is a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, and a Director on the North Queensland Dry Tropics Board.
