  • Craig Myall

    Managing Director

    Craig has over 24 years experience in the Australian agriculture segment with all of this time spent directly involved in the pasture seeds industry. His initial 9 years with leading agribusiness Elders based in Naracoorte in the heart of the small seed industry, afforded him the opportunity to work directly with farmers “in-field” with the production of seeds. Craig took up the position as General Manager of Seedmark which he held for 5 years until the business was purchased by Heritage Seeds (now Barenbrug), where he then held a senior management position and performed the role of International Business Manager for 6 years. In April 2019, Craig created the Synergy Seeds business, and today manages a highly skilled team of people, who like him, are focussed on developing and maintaining relationships for mutual benefit, from the farmers that produce their range of pasture seeds varieties, right through to an end customer base Internationally and Domestically that consume them.
