ILT chief ap­pointed

The Southland Times - - NEWS -

In­ver­cargill Li­cens­ing Trust sales and mar­ket­ing man­ager Chris Ram­say has been named as the trust’s new chief ex­ec­u­tive.

He will re­place cur­rent chief ex­ec­u­tive Greg Mul­vey from De­cem­ber 31.

Mul­vey an­nounced his retirement in July, af­ter 40 years with the trust.

Ram­say said he was ‘‘hum­bled’’ to be cho­sen to lead the or­gan­i­sa­tion into the fu­ture.

‘‘I’ve worked in a lot of dif­fer­ent roles but there’s never been one as en­rich­ing as my cur­rent one and, with­out a doubt, the fu­ture one as well.

‘‘It’s pretty rare you get to work in the cor­po­rate world and re­turn ev­ery dol­lar you make to the com- mu­nity you love. It’s unique.’’

Suc­ceed­ing a leader of Mul­vey’s cal­i­bre was an hon­our, Ram­say said.

Re­cruit­ment for a new sales and mar­ket­ing man­ager would be­gin soon, he said.

Mul­vey said he was ‘‘per­son­ally de­lighted’’ to learn of his suc­ces­sor.

‘‘Chris has a deep un­der­stand­ing of the ILT’s role in the com­mu­nity and, most im­por­tantly, how that might evolve in the fu­ture. He’s got a nat­u­ral em­pa­thy with this com­mu­nity hav­ing been raised here him­self,’’ he said.

‘‘He will bring a new en­ergy, vi­sion and di­rec­tion which is crit­i­cal to ad­dress in­evitable change as the world it­self changes.’’
