Sugar Research Australia (SRA) has announced the appointment of Mr Barry Dun as Executive Manager, Operations.

Mr Dun comes to the role with extensive sugar industry and management experience, including as a former General Manager of Tully Sugar Limited, where he oversaw the processing of large and record crops in the region in recent years.

“He has a Bachelor of Engineering and qualifications in health & safety, and strong IT skills. Barry also brings a strong commercial focus, a deep understanding of the industry, and is respected by our grower and miller members,” SRA CEO Mr Fisher said.  Mr Dun is also a Graduate member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

Mr Fisher said that Mr Dun also has a passion for research, development and adoption through his contribution to the SRA Milling Research Advisory Committee (MRAC).

“As the Executive Manager, Operations, Mr Dun will be responsible for SRA’s health, safety and environment, human resources, information technology, and asset management.

“These functions, including our research stations throughout the industry, are vital to seeing SRA continue to provide research, development and adoption activities for Australian sugarcane growers and millers.”

Mr Dun said he was looking forward to joining SRA in a position that supported research and development and that matched his skillset.

“We welcome Barry to the SRA team, and he will commence work on August 6, based at our Tully research station. This is part of a deliberate strategy to have more of our Executive Team based in our regions to not only support our staff, but to have even better linkages with our members,” Mr Fisher said.
