OUR TEAM

Water policy is complex, especially in the Border Rivers which encompasses policy and regulation in two states.
Border Rivers Food and Fibre is governed by an executive committee and employs a  fulltime Executive Officer, Tim Napier (tim.napier@brff.com.au)  and  an Executive Assistant, Rachel Gresty  (admin@brff.com.au)

 

Tim started with BRFF in 2007, the day before the announcement of the National Plan for Water Security which lead to the Murray Darling Basin Plan. His background was in cotton irrigation property management having worked around the Gwydir & Macintyre valleys for 17 years. He has a Bachelor of Management USyd & is an Australian Nuffield Farming Scholar. Tim is currently a Director of both the NSW Irrigators’ Council and the National Irrigators’ Council. 

 

Tim’s primary role is to advocate and promote the long-term sustainability of the irrigation industry in the Border Rivers region.
Tim works closely with State, Federal and local government politicians, and agency staff to advocate for our policies, to consult
and negotiate on behalf of irrigators in the Border Rivers.  Tim is well supported by Rachel, who works to ensure the organisation operates effectively and efficiently.

 

We have an active and engaged Executive Committee which forms the ‘engine room’ of our work as well.
The executive committee consists of stakeholders representing the wide and diverse industries and environment
the Border Rivers covers. The committee is elected each year at the Annual General Meeting.
