See Bio below:
Executive Director, Brown Brothers
Ross joined the family business in 1970, and has seen its extraordinary development from a small winery, based around the cellar door, to a company that today enjoys both national and international recognition.
As Chief Executive Officer Ross led the company for a very successful decade. In early 2011 he moved to the position of Executive Director, a position which allows him to spend more time in the market place both domestically and abroad, as well as hold key positions within industry organisations.
For many years Ross was actively involved in the development of the wine tourism industry. These efforts were integral in developing strategies that positioned the north east of Victoria at the forefront of winery tourism in Australia.
Ross has been a founding member and Chairman, and remains actively involved in Australia’s First Families of Wine (AFFW), a group of twelve family owned wineries that are committed to endorsing the history and quality of Australian wine in Australia and overseas.
Until recently he was a member of the Board of Wine Victoria, he continues to be passionate about his responsibility to the industry and the contributions that he can make in regard to regional development; lobbying the big issues that threaten the viability of regional Australia and the Australian wine industry.
Over recent years he has been asked to serve on a number of governmental advisory committees, with particular regional focus, economic development and agribusiness, as well as Victorian food exports into Asia.
As a long-time advocate of ‘co-operation’ within the industry, it is this lifelong philosophy that has gained Ross the respect of his peers, and continues to ensure that his contributions are meaningful and productive. At the core of his commitment is the importance of steering the family business into perpetuity and at the same time supporting and promoting the Australian wine industry at every opportunity.
