The QSL Grower Services Team has welcomed a new member, with Greg Watson joining the business as Grower Relationship Manager for QSL’s Burdekin and Herbert River offices.
Greg, pictured right, has strong roots in the sugar industry and originally hails from Home Hill where his family were cane harvesting contractors.
He is a qualified Certified Practising Accountant (CPA) and most recently was a partner and Financial Planner with Carey Financial in Ingham and Townsville.
Prior to this he held various agribusiness banking roles with the Queensland Industry Development Corporation (QIDC) and ANZ, and was Executive Officer of the Cooperative Research Centre for Sustainable Sugar Production for three years.
Greg said he was looking forward to catching up with some familiar faces from his previous work with North Queensland’s farming communities.
“It’s great to be back working with growers and I think my previous experience is a great fit for the challenges of my new role,” he said.
Greg will be based in QSL’s Ayr and Ingham offices, and can be contacted on 0409 372 305 or email Gregory.Watson@qsl.com.au.
