SPC boss steps down

Posted by Daniel Palmer on 19th March 2009

SPC Ardmona’s Managing Director has resigned to pursue other interests after almost nine years in the job.

Nigel Garrard, who took up the position of MD at the fruit processing company in 2000, will continue his career as the Managing Director of packaging company Amcor Australasia.

Mr Garrard helped guide the company through the merger of SPC and Ardmona in 2002 and the takeover by Coca-Cola Amatil in 2005. He has faced difficult trading conditions in recent years as the drought takes its toll.
