Anne Ruston Career

Ruston began working as an electorate officer for state Liberal MP Peter Arnold in 1987. In 1993, she joined the staff of state tourism minister Graham Ingerson as a tourist policy adviser, and in 1996, she was named executive officer of the Wine and Tourism Council. Her appointment was fraught with controversy, with the state opposition accusing Ingerson of swaying the selection process in her favor.

Ruston was instrumental in the formation of the National Wine Centre of Australia, first as a project director and then as the organization's first CEO. It was founded in 1998 by Premier John Olsen as a center for wine tourism and education, as well as office space for numerous wine industry organizations. Ruston oversaw the center's construction before announcing her decision not to renew her contract three months before it opened in 2001. In 2000, she and the centre's chairman, Rick Allert, were called to testify before a parliamentary committee about alleged procurement violations.

When she left, the center had over 100 employees but was apparently struggling to make ends meet and needed a bailout from the state government. The company's financial woes were attributed to a drop in air traffic following the September 11 attacks, as well as the collapse of Ansett Australia. According to Independent MP Peter Lewis, the business plan approved by Ruston and Allert exaggerated expected visitor numbers.

Ruston and her husband purchased Ruston's Roses in Renmark in 2003, a commercial rose-growing farm established in 1948 by her uncle David Ruston. He was the first Australian to serve as president of the World Federation of Rose Societies. At the time of purchase, it was said to have 50,000 rose bushes of 4,000 varieties and over 700 species of iris spread across 11 hectares (27 acres).

Due to the Millennium Drought, she was forced to halt commercial growing for three years, and the gardens were transformed into "primarily a retail-tourist enterprise," with the addition of a tourism center, function rooms, and a cafe. She served as managing director until 2012, when she was appointed to the Senate and remained a co-owner.
