Matthew Skinner will oversee all financial operations at Wide Open Agriculture (WOA), with a particular focus on data insight and action.
Skinner has extensive experience in finance and business management in Australia, the UK and Middle East, and most recently held the position of regional CFO and regional managing director at Intertek Group, a quality assurance business services company operating in more than 100 countries.
WOA’s previous CFO, Tim Whyte, will remain in the company supporting the finance team.
“Matthew brings a combination of exceptional commercial and financial acumen with a passion for data-driven results. These attributes are matched with his passion for taking real action on climate change and biodiversity through reinventing the food system,” said WOA’s managing director, Ben Cole.
Based in Western Australia, WOA is an ASX-listed regenerative food and farming business. It operates the retail brand, Dirty Clean Food, which produces the world’s first carbon neutral oat milk. The company also manufactures a unique lupin-based protein ingredient, Buntine Protein, recently securing a significant deal with global food brand, Monde Nissin.
“After returning to Australia, I was attracted to WOA’s vision to reinvent the food and farming system through a dynamic and profitable business model. I’m excited to be able to contribute to its future growth journey,” Skinner said.
