Mr Wagner has been the Executive Director of the MCA NT Division since September 2012, when he transitioned from a similar position in the Agricultural sector after moving to the Territory with his family from Queensland. With an extensive background in industry representation across rural and regional Australia for over 15 years, including in both the public and private sector, his focus has always been that of sustainability coupled with economic growth. Sitting on representative boards such as Regional Development Australia NT and Greening Australia’s Advisory Committee (as well as being a White Ribbon Ambassador) has also allowed him the opportunity to further embed himself in the Territory and her opportunities.
