Principal Trade and Investment Officer, Toowoomba
Bronwyn has more than 25 years’ experience in trade development for agriculture, including leading and managing many externally funded projects in the horticulture and new industry sectors.
She is experienced in all stages of agriculture trade development, including market and consumer research, supply-chain analysis and monitoring of sea-freight shipments, and in-market profiling and promotion.
Bronwyn was previously Manager of the Rural Market Development Unit in the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF), and Director of the Global Markets’ Initiative, an export-development program run jointly by TIQ and DAF. While employed by DAF, she oversaw Australia’s first consumer research conducted in Japan on Australian vegetables, and wrote the Export Development Strategy for Vegetables to Taiwan.
In 2015, Bronwyn and TIQ’s Tokyo office successfully re-established Australian broccoli exports to Japan after a 9-year absence from the market. This has opened up opportunities in the Japanese market for both fresh and processed vegetable products.
Bronwyn holds a Bachelor of Business (Marketing) and a Graduate Diploma in Communication, and is currently studying a Bachelor of Laws.
