Leadership change at Ngarluma Yindjibarndi
Ngarluma Yindjibarndi Foundation has appointed group general manager Bruce Jorgensen as its new chief executive to replace the retiring Evan Maloney.
NYFL chairman Arnold Lockyer said Mr Jorgenson would be faced with a demanding role.
He said Mr Jorgensen brought years of experience in the mining construction industry, on some of the biggest construction projects in the State, both in the Pilbara and the Kimberley.
Mr Jorgensen has spent the past 12 months with NYFL, co-ordinating its widespread social and commercial interests, including the recent acquisition of the Dampier Salt cleaning contract at its three Pilbara sites.
NYFL now has commercial interests in cleaning and maintenance, a tyre store, hospitality through the Whim Creek Hotel, Ieramugadu Cafe in Roebourne and the Pilbara TAFE cafes in Karratha and Hedland, as well as social responsibilities for its more than 1400 members.
After spending the past 10 years at the head of NYFL, Mr Maloney will be retained as an adviser.
Bruce Jorgensen is the NYFL’s new chief executive.
