Barney Jones has been appointed to the role of General Manager – Chemicals Joint Ventures and Australian Vinyls. As part of this position, Barney will oversee Australian Gold Reagents (AGR).
When asked about his appointment, Barney commented:
“I’m excited to be joining AGR after working in other parts of CSBP for eight years. My previous roles were customer-centric and driven by a commitment to deliver on customer’s needs at all times.
“I think knowing and understanding the customers’ needs, and what role we, the supplier, could play, can only come from building relationships.
“This is something I’m keen to focus on as I move into my new role and I look forward to meeting as many customers as I can over the coming weeks and months.”
Barney first joined Wesfarmers Limited in 2005, where he was involved in the Coles acquisition along with a number of other projects. Moving to CSBP Chemicals in 2010 as the Commercial Manager – Ammonium Nitrate, he then took on the Business Manager role in 2012. Most recently, Barney held a leadership role in the CSBP Fertilisers business, where he was responsible for state-wide Storage and Despatch.
Barney has both graduate and postgraduate qualifications in Science and Finance.
