Gavin Evans

Founder and Director

Gavin was born and raised in the Otway Ranges on prime dairy farming river flats that the Evans family settled in the 1880’s and continue to farm. These rural roots are combined with a highly commercial view of the world and what is required to drive successful organisations.

Summary

This is especially clear in Gavin’s vision and approach to sustainable farming models and how businesses in the supply chain need to be run and operated in the 21st Century and beyond.

Gavin has over 20 years’ experience in corporate strategy, finance, business transformation & executive management roles. This experience has been spread over various industries in Australia, Asia, Europe & the UK. Those industry sectors include agribusiness, investment banking, nancial services, professional services, tourism, manufacturing & logistics.

This vast experience culminated in Gavin founding Evans Agribusiness Trading (EAT) Group in 2008. Gavin is filling the role of CEO of Camperdown Powder, a key EAT Group project.

Gavin has a Bachelor of Commerce degree.
