Pilbara News - - News -

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.
