The Aussie Farmers Group (AFG) has advised that Keith Louie has stepped down as group CEO.
A board spokesperson said: “Keith has had an outstanding career in the Australian retail industry and has done a great job over the past two years in positioning AFG for the next important phase of the company’s development.
“2017 will be a watershed year for AFG as the company rolls out a number of exciting new initiatives, such as offering The General Store nationwide and expanding our ready-to-cook meals offering.
“These offerings, together with Aussie Farmers Direct’s Australian farmer procurement model, day-before ordering, no subscriptions and great value combine to give a unique offering that will deliver sustainable growth and success for the company.”
The AFG Board says it wishes Mr Louie well in his future endeavours. The company’s CFO, Brendan Shaw, has been appointed Acting CEO to lead the business while a new CEO is identified and confirmed.
