MFMG appoints Sally Klose to Chief Executive Officer role
18th January 2024
MacKillop Farm Management Group (MFMG) is pleased to announce the appointment of Lucindale based consultant Sally Klose as their Chief Executive Officer. Sally replaces Meg Bell, who is leaving the role to start a family with her husband Owen.
Sally Klose, who will commence the role on 5 February 2024, has worked with MacKillop Farm Management Group for the previous two years in the Communications and Events Officer role, increasing MFMG’s profile and establishing relationships with MFMG’s members and sponsors.
Sally has extensive experience in governance, strategic planning, project management and community and stakeholder engagement. In addition, Sally and her husband Chris operate a prime lamb and beef business at Lucindale.
Sally has broad networks throughout the community, and the wide skillset that she brings to the role will be of enormous benefit to MFMG’s members and to the agricultural community in the Limestone Coast.
“I’m passionate about and committed to the Limestone Coast and agriculture in the region. I’m looking forward to a new challenge and will build on Meg’s efforts ensuring MFMG is recognised as a farming systems group that serves its members and sponsors with a focus on both livestock and cropping in our region.” Sally Klose said.
Meg started with MFMG in 2018, and is leaving the organisation in a good financial position with an extensive range of cropping and livestock projects underway, filling gaps in knowledge and extension.
“I’ve had such enjoyment from my time with MFMG, and working for the best outcomes for our members, sponsors and the agricultural industry in our region. I wish Sally all the best with the role – she will do a wonderful job as CEO, and we’re lucky to have someone with her skillset as part of our organisation.” Meg said.
