Fiona Simson believes that agriculture is an industry of the future. Collaborative and passionate, she has been an agricultural industry leader at both a state and federal level since 2008.

Elected in 2016 as the first female President of National Farmers Federation in its 39 year history, she is now leading industry through an exciting period of change.

A farmer herself with her husband Ed and family from the Liverpool Plains in NSW, she hopes to create opportunities for more women to become involved in industry, and was instrumental in the launch of the NFF’s first Diversity in Ag Leadership Programme in 2018.

She is a skilled and experienced Board Director, with particular experience in policy development, communication and governance. She also sits as a Director on the Boards of Australian Made Australian Grown, NRMA (NSW), and AgStewardship.
