Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) has announced the appointment of Nigel Gosse to the newly created role of General Manager Operations. AWI CEO Stuart McCullough welcomed Nigel to Sydney from the organisation’s London office where he was in the position of Country Manager, United Kingdom and Turkey, a position he had held since April 2016.

“Nigel’s appointment is the result of the implementation of one of the 82 recommendations included in the Review of Performance (the Report) with the new position created to strengthen the employment practices of AWI,” Mr McCullough shared.

“As a fifth-generation woolgrower with extensive experience in several facets of the wool industry, Nigel has been instrumental in shaping the United Kingdom and Turkey office into its current position, establishing several major and successful campaigns and projects including adidas, Woolmark Performance Challenge, Campaign for Wool and the Commonwealth Fashion Exchange with Eco Age.

“He has also worked closely with government representatives in a number of countries on collaborative events whilst providing support across the supply chain with the United Kingdom, Turkish and Chinese mills.

“Nigel’s appointment is evidence that AWI has welcomed the Report and thought hard about what we do. We are committed to maintaining our industry leadership position and acting in the best interests of Australian woolgrowers.”

Newly appointed AWI General Manager Operations Nigel Gosse, said he was pleased to return to Sydney and was excited about the challenge of his new role.

“It’s a great industry and I’ve enjoyed working across the supply chain in various roles, including my time so far with AWI, which have combined to provide me with a broad understanding of the global wool market and its supply chain.

This is a great opportunity to continue to add value to the industry and to Australian woolgrowers who thoroughly deserve the current resurgence in price, which has been based on building awareness for nature’s miracle fibre and converting this to increased demand,” Mr Gosse said.

“The wool industry is changing rapidly with innovative technology and a growth in global demand for premium Australian wool. There are so many opportunities to deliver benefits to our growers and help them navigate through some of the real and important challenges they face, including the drought – all while listening to and acting upon the feedback they provide to us.”
