Apple and Pear Australia Ltd’s managing director Jon Durham will leave the organisation at the end of September.

Mr Durham has worked with APAL and its predecessor organisation, Australian Apple and Pear Growers Association, for more than two decades and will step down to pursue other interests and spend more time contributing to his family business.

APAL chairman John Lawrenson said the board would be sorry to see Mr Durham leave APAL after more than 20 years of outstanding service not only as managing director, but earlier as chairman.

‘‘We are fortunate to have eight months’ notice of Jon’s departure,’’ Mr Lawrenson said.

‘‘This will give the APAL board adequate time to conduct a widespread search for his replacement.

‘‘Jon will leave APAL well resourced and in good shape.’’

There will be an opportunity to recognise Mr Durham’s contribution to the apple and pear industry closer to his departure.
