New season brings change for QCS

This year’s crush will see a new trading manager at Queensland Commodity Services (QCS), Mackay Sugar Limited’s GEI sugar marketer.

QCS General Manager Mr Brent Casey announced today that the current trading manager, Stephen Stone, had resigned from QCS, with his resignation taking immediate effect.

“We’d first and foremost like to thank Steve for his valuable contribution to the strong returns achieved by QCS over the past two seasons,” Mr Casey said.

“QCS has benefited from Steve’s knowledge and experience in sugar pricing and banking, and we wish him all the very best for the future.

“We have commenced the recruitment process for a new trading manager, and anticipate that it will take several months to fill the role.

In the meantime, Mr Casey noted that QCS had put in place measures to ensure the organisation would continue to deliver industry-leading returns to Mackay growers.

“We retain a substantial amount of experience in all areas of sugar pricing, marketing and risk management, and it is ‘business as usual’ at QCS,” said Mr Casey.
