Rabobank announces the appointment of Georgia Twomey as a commodity analyst in its Food & Agribusiness Research and Advisory team. To be based in Rabobank’s Australia/New Zealand head office in Sydney, Ms Twomey will oversee the three key sectors of sugar, cotton and wool for Rabobank’s business in the region.

Ms Twomey has a clear passion for the agricultural industry as well as strong knowledge of the sector, having been raised with a farming background, growing up in Goulburn in southern New South Wales. She believes the sector really holds the key to Australia’s future economic security.

Ms Twomey has a degree in Economics (Social Science) from the University of Sydney and has recently held a role with the Australian Chamber of Commerce in Singapore as business programme manager, providing her with significant exposure to Australian business and government engagement throughout the Asian region.

Ms Twomey’s knowledge of agricultural production, processing and marketing has developed through marketing and supply chain management roles held within the Lempriere Group, based in Melbourne, and as a consultant working on projects for local and federal Government and rural industry groups with natural resources and agricultural specialists Arche Consulting in Sydney.

She chose to join Rabobank because of its sole focus on agriculture. In her new role, she hopes to bring together market insights from a global perspective and extend that knowledge to clients locally to help them to grow their businesses and value add.

Rabobank’s Food & Agribusiness Research and Advisory (FAR) team is responsible for analysing developments in global food and agricultural markets and industries, and advising the bank and its clients on strategic implications for their businesses.

Rabobank head of Food & Agribusiness Research and Advisory Luke Chandler said Ms Twomey was an excellent ‘fit’ for the research team given her wide industry knowledge, experience, and working history in Asia. Describing Georgia as a high calibre research analyst with a great breadth of experience that is relevant to Rabobank clients in Australia and New Zealand, Mr Chandler adds that the team looks forward to the value she will bring to the business, specifically across the sugar, cotton and wool sectors.
