Queensland Sugar chief executive resigns

Queensland’s sugar marketing body has announced the resignation of its chief executive, but says people should not lose confidence in the group.

Chairman Allan Winney announced Neil Taylor will retire from Queensland Sugar Limited next month to a role outside the sugar industry.

“Neil Taylor joined QSL in August 2009 and has managed the business of the sugar marketer and logistics provider through some of the most challenging times for the Australian sugar industry, two back-to-back seasons impacted by extraordinary weather and a period of significant takeover activity and industry consolidation.,” Winney said.

“During that time he has made a significant contribution to reshaping QSL into a more commercial company and demonstrated strong leadership to the organisation.

“Mr Taylor has developed an excellent management team and leaves the organisation in very good shape for the future.”

Following last year’s failed season and delivery shortfall, a major review of QSL was conducted, costing the industry over $105 million.
