ANZ regional executive for north-west Victoria, Lionel Sexton has urged the ­region to “take a lead” in agricultural technology as he departs Mildura for a role in Geelong next month. 

A country boy from Pakenham, Mr Sexton and his family have called Mil­dura home for the past seven years –where he has worked in ANZ Mildura’s business centre in commercial and agricultural business lending. 

“(Mildura) is in a really good time for agri­culture, it’s on the rise,” he said. 

“I think it would be great to attract manufacturing businesses involved in the ­agricultural tech space, given our industries here and reliance on agri­culture.”
