Episode 29: Ben Macnamara, CEO of CBH Group
Welcome to another brand new episode of Euroz Hartleys Finding the Front! With Euroz Hartleys being the Principal Partner for the upcoming Dowerin Machinery Field Days at the end of this month we thought it would be a fantastic opportunity to spend some time again, and get an update from, the CEO of the CBH Group, Mr Ben Macnamara. Ben was a guest on Finding the Front back in early 2022 when he had just been appointed to the role of CEO, a huge responsibility. That episode was very well received.
Over the past 18 months CBH has experienced pressure packed back to back bumper record breaking crops which has required some serious thought and action on key infrastructure to handle such a massive volume of grain.
Ben provides his insights into the last 18 months covering all the challenges and opportunities faced including infrastructure, truck and rail transport, port capacity, shipping, market pricing and fertiliser. He also delivers his insights into the CBH strategy on their pathway to 2033. For those who are involved in agriculture or love the land this is a must listen as it is a powerful insight and a classic example of the incredibly important role agriculture, farmers and grain growers play in the success of this amazing state.
