Fox & Lillie Rural are pleased to announce the recent appointment of Adrian Tuohey to the company. He joins the team as a Wool Marketing Representative in the Central West Victorian region with over 40 years of industry knowledge and experience.
Adrian first started his career in the shearing sheds after he finished school and has been ingrained in the wool industry ever since. Adrian is particularly skilled in wool classing from years of first-hand experience in breeding and running sheep of his own.
Eamon Timms, Fox & Lillie Rural’s National Wool Brokerage manager said “Fox & Lillie Rural are very pleased to welcome Adrian to our expanding team. Adrian has extensive experience and skill and will be an excellent asset to our business and to our clients in the Central West Victorian region.”
Adrian’s passion for the wool industry is evident from his involvement with various organisations and running industry events. Adrian has been the President of the Northern Shears Shearing for over 4 years now and runs the Wool Handling competition at the Australian Sheep and Wool Show in Bendigo.
More recently, Adrian has been accepted on the board of the Australian Stud Sheep Breeder Association (ASSBA) who have welcomed having a wool broker representative joining the association.
Adrian prides himself on maintaining strong relationships with woolgrowers, supporting them with their wool preparation and providing sound wool market information and advice on their wool clip in order to maximise their returns.
“I’m very excited to join Fox & Lillie Rural as a Wool Marketing Representative in the Central West Victorian region. Being a farmer and wool classer myself, I thoroughly enjoy connecting with woolgrowers and working collaboratively together to get the most out of their product.”
Eamon said that “Adrian is very much a customer focused operator, and we believe he is an extremely good fit for our business and will provide tremendous service to our clients.”
With his industry knowledge and expertise, Fox & Lillie Rural very much welcome Adrian on the team!
