Justin Rohde runner-up of the 2023 National Young Auctioneers Competition

Emerald agent Justin Rohde has been named runner-up of the 2023 ALPA National Young Auctioneers Competition.

“I feel really honoured to place runner up, especially in such a strong field of agents from across the country,” said Justin.

“I want to say a big thank you to the whole team at Nutrien and everyone who has been behind me over the past five years I’ve been with the company. I definitely wouldn’t be here today without the support of my team, community, vendors and buyers.”

Also representing Nutrien in the battle of the gavel was Jake Robinson (Nutrien Dalby), Jack Guy (Nutrien Bordertown) and Jack Ginnane (Nutrien South Gippsland, Leongatha).

The competition was won by Elders agent Harry Waters at the Sydney Royal Easter Show in front of a packed auditorium.

Ten of the best young auctioneers from across the state also went head-to-head in the NSW competition. Nutrien’s finalists included Jaiden Burke (Nutrien Narrandera), Hamish Fauchon (Davidson Cameron & Co Coonabarabran) and Henry Pitman (Nutrien Bathurst).
