Dr Caroline Read has resigned as chief executive of Overseer to take up the role of chief executive at FishServe.

Read joined Overseer as general manager in 2013 and was appointed to the chief executive role in April 2016.

“Caroline has been instrumental in the establishment of Overseer Limited and the development of OverseerFm as a farm planning and management tool to help farmers and growers make better decisions to improve their farm’s environmental sustainability and productivity,” says Ian Clarke, board chair of Overseer Limited.

“Having built a high performing team around her, she has also been a driving force behind the ongoing development and continuous improvement of OverseerFm. She leaves with our best wishes and we congratulate Caroline on her new role,” Clarke says.

The board has initiated a search process for a new chief executive.
