Re­gional Devel­op­ment Trust

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - REPORTER NEWS -

THE WA Re­gional Devel­op­ment Trust has a new hand at the helm with the State Gov­ern­ment ap­point­ing Bren­dan Ham­mond as chair­man last week.

Mr Ham­mond re­places out­go­ing chair­man Tim Shana­han in the role.

The Trust pro­vides in­de­pen­dent ad­vice to the Re­gional Devel­op­ment Min­is­ter, Alan­nah MacTier­nan, on the ap­pli­ca­tion and man­age­ment of Roy­al­ties for Re­gions.

Ms MacTier­nan said Mr Ham­mond would bring drive to the trust and pro­vide ad­vice as the State Gov­ern­ment shifted the fo­cus of Roy­al­ties for Re­gions to cre­at­ing long-term jobs in the re­gions.

Mr Ham­mond was awarded the Gov­er­nor’s Award for Re­gional Devel­op­ment at the Western Aus­tralian Ci­ti­zen of the Year Awards in 2011 and is also chair­man of the Pil­bara Devel­op­ment Com­mis­sion.
