Head of Industry Engagement was considered a pivotal role for the business, as the conduit between industry and research, to strengthening the market for alternative proteins (plant-based meat, precision fermentation and cultivated meat innovations) across Australia, New Zealand and beyond.
This role acted as the connector between Food Frontier and a broad range of industry stakeholders, responsible for gathering and applying industry insights to inform the direction and focus of Food Frontier’s work, ensuring the delivery of maximum impact to advance the sector, collaborative opportunities and problem-solving across the supply chain – from research to retail. This enables sector growth and development and ensures Food Frontier remains a valued partner to the industry.
Jennifer Galvin-Rowley and Laura Gaugain partnered with Jane on this key role Search
They identified candidates with a strong understanding of the FMCG industry sector and associated supply chains with the personal and professional skills and interest in transitioning from FMCG into the NFP space.
The search was challenging, exacerbated by being undertaken in a tight job market as the economy emerged from COVID lockdowns. With tenacity, resilience and close communication with Jane and Thomas, the Galvin-Rowley Executive team not only delivered an impressive group of possible candidates but ultimately was delighted to place Susie O’Neill into the role in mid-2022.
The success of this partnership opened the opportunity to amplify further and extend the impact for both organisations. Food Frontiers ‘Partner In People’ Galvin-Rowley Executive has the chance to use their particular skills and talent to help Food Frontier grow its capacity for impact by providing influential People & Talent solutions.
