Watkins joined the Woolworths board in January 2007 and has played a significant role through this period of further growth and diversification, said Woolworths chairman James Strong.
She has displayed a keen interest in all aspects of the company and has been a strong contributor to the board and its committees including chairing the Audit Risk Management and Compliance Committee. The Board and Management wish her well in her new role as CEO of GrainCorp,” he said.
