Pork CRC Media Release - March 19, 2014
Pauline Mooney Joins Pork CRC Board
Pauline Mooney, Executive Director, South Australian Research and
Development Institute (SARDI), has been appointed to the Board of Directors
of the CRC for High Integrity Australian Pork (Pork CRC).
Affiliate Professor Mooney replaces Simon Maddocks on the Board, after
Professor Maddocks resigned to accept a position as Vice Chancellor at
Charles Darwin University in the Northern Territory.
The Pork CRC Board comprises Dennis Mutton (Chairman), Kathryn Adams, Sandra
Di Blasio, Rod Hamann, Professor Pauline Mooney, Professor John Pluske,
Kenton Shaw, Andrew Spencer, Chris Trengrove, Professor Robert van Barneveld
and Dr Hugh Wirth.
The four research programs of the CRC for High Integrity Australian Pork
1. Reduced confinement of sows and piglets
2. Herd health management
3. Healthy pork consumption
4. Carbon-conscious nutrient inputs and outputs
Announcing the appointment, Pork CRC Chairman, Dennis Mutton, welcomed
Professor Mooney and paid tribute to the contribution of Professor Maddocks.
"Simon not only represented SARDI, regarded as one of the Pork CRC's most
significant participants, but also contributed in his own right as a
scientist and an administrator with substantial experience on the boards of
CRC's," Mr Mutton said.
"Pauline brings similar outstanding scientific and management rigour to the
Pork CRC Board and we look forward to her contributions as we move deep into
our second term."
Despite 29 years in science, business and financial leadership, including
extensive experience in strategy planning, research and project management
for primary industries research across terrestrial, marine, livestock and
food sectors, Professor Mooney admits to never having worked directly in the
pig or pork industry.
"Although the drivers and science behind the Pork CRC's programs will be new
to me, my research interests have always been eclectic, so the opportunities
the industry has before it and the associated challenges certainly have
sparked my interest," she said.
"I look forward to working with Pork CRC's Board of Directors, its highly
motivated Executive management team, fellow participants and research
providers to address such topical issues as animal welfare, pig health, meat
quality and the environment."
Professor Mooney has broad knowledge across a range of science programs and
related research activities, including breeding superior plants and
developing sustainable production systems through novel processing
techniques, post-harvest handling and storage systems, evaluating consumer
preferences and natural resource management.
She holds a PhD (University of Sydney), MSc cum laude (University of Natal),
BSc Hons cum laude (University of Natal), BSc (University of Natal) and is
an Affiliate Professor in the School of Agriculture Food and Wine at
University of Adelaide.
Professor Mooney, a Graduate and Member of Australian Institute of Company
Directors, has extensive governance and corporate leadership experience,
including 11 years as director on a range of boards and as a member of a
number of committees.
She is currently a Board Member of Australian Grain Technologies and
