Fresh eyes for Rotto


Cockburn Gazette - - NEWS -

MICHELLE Reynolds wants to see new busi­nesses and new ex­pe­ri­ences on Rot­tnest Is­land.

The new Rot­tnest Is­land Au­thor­ity (RIA) chief ex­ec­u­tive said her first task was to en­sure the RIA was the most pro­fes­sional it could be and was con­tribut­ing to the hol­i­day des­ti­na­tion in a pos­i­tive way.

“Peo­ple have a great ex­pe­ri­ence on the is­land but or­gan­i­sa­tion­ally I want to en­sure we are the best we can be,” Ms Reynolds said.

“It’s about mak­ing sure we are pro­fes­sion­ally pitched.”

The Ned­lands res­i­dent has been to Rot­tnest only a hand­ful of times but be­lieves this will be a pos­i­tive in the new role that she started on Jan­uary 4.

“I can look at the is­land with fresh eyes,”she said.

She is look­ing for­ward to work­ing with a new Labor State Gov­ern­ment.

“It’s per­fect tim­ing be­cause a new gov­ern­ment brings with it new pri­or­i­ties and an op­por­tu­nity to re­cal­i­brate how and why things are done,” Ms Reynolds said.

“As a brand new CEO, I’ll be work­ing with the new gov­ern­ment on that process.”

Ms Reynolds was the chief ex­ec­u­tive of WorkCover WA, a State Gov­ern­ment agency, since 2008 and took op­por­tu­ni­ties with the Of­fice of Science and the State Emer­gency Man­age­ment Com­mit­tee dur­ing her nine-year stint.
