Wayne Collier

During nine years working for LiveCorp before being appointed CEO in 2021, Mr Collier led the delivery of its activities in areas such as market access, regulation, innovation, training and, most recently, research and development.

His experience in critical analysis and his understanding of the industry have allowed him to provide detailed technical advice and evidence-based submissions to the regulator, to feed into government reviews and policy development. Mr Collier has worked with the Australian Government and industry to facilitate market access for more than 21 markets, and represented LiveCorp and the industry multiple times in the Middle East, China and Indonesia.

Mr Collier has a Bachelor of Applied Science, Natural Resource Management from Deakin University and a Bachelor of Law from Monash University. His interest in land management and primary industries led to a lengthy career with first the federal and then Victorian departments of agriculture. This provided Mr Collier with a strong knowledge of governance, program management, policy formulation and legislative processes, and experience analysing complex issues and providing technical advice.
