- Ken Pattison: Former 'Plug the Pipe' spokesman, ex KAP member and water expert.

- Darren Cooper: Former KAP Victorian Secretary and newly appointed the new Secretary of the (Australian) Country Alliance.
- Cheryl Arnol: Timber industry champion, former Tasmanian councillor and senate candidate for the party in Tasmania.
With the addition of these people to the team, the Country Alliance will have broader capabilities across the range of principles it represents in the lead up to this year's Victorian State Election.
The executive consists of nine in total. The other remaining members are Russell Bate OAM (Chair), Russell Pearson, Andrew Jones, Garry Kerr and Tony Leen.
Upon final approval from the Victorian Electoral Commission, it is anticipated the Country Alliance, armed with its improved line up, will be registered as the "Australian Country Alliance".
