Responsible for company-wide operations, Jeremy provides the operating framework to achieve our business goals and our vision of a safe, sustainable future for our people, our plantations and our communities.

Prior to joining HQP in 2019, Jeremy spent nearly two decades as an executive in the agriculture industry. Jeremy was the CEO of Namoi Cotton for more than eight years, having previously served as the company’s CFO and General Manager Operations & Human Resources.

Jeremy holds a Bachelor of Financial Administration with Honours from the University of New England, and is a fully qualified Chartered Accountant and a Graduate of the Australian Institute of Company Directors.

In his role as HQP’s CEO, Jeremy is excited to be part of producing a product that will provide security and value for future generations, and expects his team members to be passionate, bold and unwilling to accept the status quo.

When he’s not in the office or in our plantations, you’ll find Jeremy golfing, holidaying at the beach with his wife and three children, and cheering on New South Wales in the State of Origin.

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader
