In this critical role for SRA, Dr O'Shea will be responsible for the organisation's health, safety and environment, information technology, human resources, assets and facilities, and farms and operations.

SRA CEO Mr Neil Fisher said Dr O'Shea was highly qualified for the position, with extensive experience in senior management and research within the Australian sugarcane industry spanning more than 20 years.

Dr O'Shea said he looked forward to working closely with SRA staff, the sugarcane industry, and other key stakeholders in his new role.

"SRA is firmly focused on delivering productivity, profitability and sustainability for sugarcane growers and millers and I look forward to further contributing to industry outcomes and impact through this challenging role as Executive Manager, Operations," Dr O'Shea said.
