John Love has been very actively involved in The Wine Society since July 2001, and was appointed Chairman in mid-2011 - a position underpinned by his strong working knowledge of co-operatives, and his firm belief, and commitment to, their underlying democratic principles.
John's 45 years' experience in the banking and finance industry, both in Australia and abroad is complemented by his more recent foray into change management consulting, agriculture and product marketing.
John's practical Board experience and corporate governance has been gained through Directorships of both listed and unlisted domestic and international companies, currently including MGIC and MPS.
John's past community involvement has included serving as an Alderman of Sydney City Council, a Director of the Eastern Suburbs Area Health Service and as a National Serviceman in Vietnam. His family has been involved in the Australian wine industry for over 40 years and John continues that association today with his involvement with The Wine Society and as a managing partner of Collina del Re, an ultra-premium vineyard in north-east Victoria.
