Re­cruit­ment for new CEO is un­der­way

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY BUSINESS -

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.”
