MGA warmly welcomes Michael McCormack as the new leader of the National Party and new Deputy Prime Minister of Australia
Jos de Bruin, CEO of MGA Independent Retailers, said today that, “In his new roles Michael McCormack will be a great asset to the Cabinet. He is a staunch supporter of small businesses and understands the needs and concerns of family owned businesses.
He has grown up in a family business and, as Member for the Riverina district in NSW, he is in touch with the wider needs of the Australian community.”
Mr. de Bruin said, “Last year Mr. McCormack travelled around Australia on his Small Business Roadshow where he met and talked to family enterprises and privately owned business owners in about 30 different venues.
He gained valuable insights into their needs and was able to assess their vital contribution to the Australian economy. We are confident that he will continue to use his voice for small businesses in Cabinet and we congratulate him on his important new role.”
