Recruitment for new CEO is underway
AT CLOSE of business last Wednesday, Danial Rochford officially stepped down from his role as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Whitsundays Marketing and Development Limited (WMDL).
Mr Rochford has now left the Whitsunday region for Tasmania where he will be reunited with his family and where he will step into a new CEO role.
Until his position at WMDL has been filled, the board of directors has appointed Jeff Aquilina as Executive Direc- tor, to manage the organisation in the interim. Mr Aquilina said the board had already started the recruitment process, with applications for the CEO role closing last week
“The Board is motivated to fill the position as soon as possible by appointing a suitable candidate to the role as CEO,” he said.
“In the interim, I will act as Executive Director to maintain continuity, momentum and to ensure that WMDL can continue the successful work for our region.”
