Introducing our staff
Chief Executive Officer
Tony grew up in Regional North Western Australia and has been located in the Pilbara 3 years. Tony served as a Local Government Councillor from 2001-2005 and as a Local Member of Parliament from 2005 – 2017 where he had portfolio accountability for Local Government, Community Services, Seniors, Volunteering and Youth.
Tony has encompassed a range of strategic, tactical, and operational management accountabilities which has given him the opportunity to influence and impact the overall direction of an organisation whilst ensuring efficient and effective use of resources, budgets, and workforce productivity to maximise outcomes.
As a strong community minded person, Tony's belief is that those of us who choose to live and work in the Pilbara should not be disadvantaged, and should be afforded the same services and luxuries that those in other regions receive, especially as the Pilbara is the backbone of not only the West Australian economy, but the Australian economy.
