Regional Development Australia (RDA) Sunshine Coast Chair Tony Riddle has thanked outgoing CEO Russell Mason for his commitment and service over the past five years.
“Mr Mason has played an active role in many collaborative regional projects including Digital Sunshine Coast, The Digital Work Hub Project and has been a strong supporter of innovation in our region,” he said.
“Mr Mason was a tireless worker for RDA and certainly helped establish the Sunshine Coast brand and credibility throughout Australia. We wish him well in his new role as CEO of Suncare Community Services.”
Mr Riddle said Interim CEO Anne Lawrence would oversee the changeover period to ensure continuity and a smooth transition during the current recruitment process.
“Mrs Lawrence, a local businesswoman, has been working with RDA Sunshine Coast for more than two years and will continue to provide ongoing support to our stakeholders including the delivery of current projects.”
Mr Riddle said the search for a new CEO started last week and applications were warmly welcomed.
Applications close 10 June 2015.
