Announcement: John Silver Acting CEO


4 December 2017

The Board of Rangelands NRM is pleased to announce the appointment of John Silver as Acting CEO of Rangelands NRM, effective Monday 4 December 2017.

The Board would like to thank outgoing CEO Dr Gaye Mackenzie for her work and contribution to the rangelands over the past seven years.  We wish Gaye well in her future endeavours.

John has a strong background in NRM and commitment to the WA rangelands, having worked for Rangelands NRM for 11 years and has been the Operations Manager for the past seven years.  John is well placed to lead the organisation in the interim and seek future funding through the National Landcare Program (NLP2).

With John as Acting CEO, Rangelands NRM will continue to operate ‘business as usual’.  The organisation is committed to working with stakeholders throughout the rangelands of WA to enable collaboration on a landscape-scale level.  Working from a community development approach will enable projects and organisations to achieve true sustainability to look after their ‘own patch’.

John can be contacted on 08 9192 5771 (office) or 0427 087 670 (mobile), and via email.
