Northern NSW : Winter 2012 redo
Farewell to managers Welcome to new Change has been an inevitable part in the continued success of the Service in helping to protect our communities. I am proud to say that almost all change has been driven and managed by a Board and management attuned to the need to provide the best possible professional support to the health and ambulance systems of our state. Inevitably, as each successful year passes, the faces that are part of the team have changed and 2012 brings to end the involvement of a couple of well known staff leaders and the introduction of a new manager. Phil Williams, our long serving Business Manager and more lately responsible for special funding matters, is to retire. Phil joined the Service in 2003 and readily accepted what many thought was a daunting challenge to engage with the community in ways that would help to raise funds to purchase more capable aircraft. He and his team worked with our Support Groups and with individuals on a spectacular range of events and community engagement and targets were met. One of those in that team was Kieron O'Toole, who was initially appointed as Wage Deduction Program Coordinator. He, too, successfully expanded this program and was later appointed to replace Phil in the Business Manager's role in early 2011. Both these men have contributed much, adding to our wealth of skills and community connection that will stand us in good stead for many years. We acknowledge their contributions and thank them. The newest member of our team is Chad Griffith who is now Business Manager. Chad is well known in the region for his participation in surf life saving and for his professional expertises in business growth. We also welcome Adam Tyrrell as Community Liaison Officer working in the payroll deduction area. Richard Jones General Manager Westpac Rescue Helicopter Service - Rescue Winter 2012 Page 3
