Dr Mark Krstic appointed managing director of the AWRI
Dr Mark Krstic has been appointed the new Managing Director of the Australian Wine Research Institute (AWRI), from 1 February 2020.
Dr Krstic has extensive experience both as a researcher and as an executive. He was president of the Society from 2009-2011, and has held a number of key roles across the wine industry.
“The opportunity to lead the AWRI is both humbling and exciting,” said Dr Krstic. “At a time when our industry is facing incredible opportunities and challenges, the importance of world-class grape and wine science and a strong technical support base to help Australian grape and wine producers succeed cannot be overstated.”
