Dr Vivien Kite has been named the new executive director of the Australian Chicken Meat Federation (ACMF) and the Australian Poultry Industries Association (APIA). Kite will replace Dr Andreas Dubs, who is retiring in July.

Kite is well-known to many in the chicken meat industry, having served in the position of deputy executive director and R&D manager for more than 20 years. She is a long-standing member of the executive of the International Poultry Council, where she represents the Australian poultry industry. More recently, Kite also became the association’s official blogger, with monthly pieces published on www.chookchat.org.au​.

Replacing Kite as assistant executive director and R&D manager is Dr Kylie Hewson, who is currently working as R&D project manager for the Australian Egg Corporation and will start her new role in August.

APIA board chairman Kevin McBain thanked Dubs for his service over the past 10 years. "We wish Andreas all the best as his career progresses to non-executive director and advisory roles,"​ he said.
