Campaspe News - - NEWS - By RUSTY WOODGER

BRAD Drust is the new boss of the El­more/Lock­ing­ton/Rochester Com­mu­nity Bank branches.

The El­more res­i­dent ac­cepted the po­si­tion as chair of Lock­more Fi­nan­cial Ser­vices, which op­er­ate the branches, at a re­cent an­nual gen­eral meet­ing in Lock­ing­ton.

Mr Drust is the chief ex­ec­u­tive of North Cen­tral Catch­ment Man­age­ment Au­thor­ity, a state govern­ment body which works with the com­mu­nity to en­hance the in­tegrity of the rich nat­u­ral re­sources in north cen­tral Vic­to­ria.

He said he was ex­cited about his past di­rec­tors who re­tired at the re­cent meet­ing.

Kate Tay­lor, who had been chair for the pre­vi­ous two years whilst on the board for six years and Amanda Lo­gie, who served for three years.

Mr Drust said there were no bet­ter lo­cal role mod­els than Kate and Amanda.

‘‘Their lo­cal knowl­edge, com­mu­nity spirit and busi­ness sense has helped the Com­mu­nity Bank com­pany to grow to where it is to­day,’’ he said.

‘‘Both Kate and Amanda were in­stru­men­tal on the steer­ing com­mit­tee who opened the Rochester branch back in 2011.’’
