Riverine Plains announces new CEO, Pip Grant

Pip Grant has been appointed as the new Chief Executive Officer of Riverine Plains.

Riverine Plains is pleased to announce that Pip Grant has been appointed as its new CEO.

“Pip Grant comes with years of experience specialising in bringing innovation into, and growing organisations,” said Riverine Plains Board Chair, Fiona Marshall.

“We are thrilled to have been able to attract such a high-calibre leader and Pip brings skills which are beautifully suited to fulfil the needs of the organisation as we grow it into the next phase,” she said.

Pip was the inaugural convenor of EvokeAg, now the pre-eminent agtech conference in the Asia-Pacific region, while her most recent position has seen her working in the soil carbon sector, a space Riverine Plains knows is increasingly important to members.

“The Riverine Plains team has worked hard to build a strong organisation with increasing membership, increasing partner and collaborator investment and wonderful staff morale,” Mrs Marshall said.

“We are looking forward to having Pip start with us to ensure the growth in impact and engagement continues and we are confident that the organisation will be in very safe hands under Pip’s leadership.

“We are also immensely conscious of losing our inspirational CEO, Catherine Marriott — we wish her all the very best and thank her for the contribution she has made to Riverine Plains and agriculture in the region more broadly,” added Mrs Marshall.

Ms Grant is eager to make a meaningful contribution to the future of Riverine Plains, working with its members, partners and research collaborators.

Pip Grant will begin her role at the Mulwala office on 18 September. During the transitional period, Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Sara Hely, will serve as the acting CEO, ensuring the smooth operation of Riverine Plains.
