The Perth NRM Board are very pleased to announce that after a rigorous recruitment process they have appointed a new executive Management team consisting of CEO Paul Bodlovich and COO Keith Pekin. This marks a change for the team which will ensure both a safe pair of hands for the technical NRM program management with Keith’s new role, and an outward focus on innovative business development and income diversification with the appointment of the new CEO. Paul comes to the NRM sector with strategic qualifications in Commerce, an MBA and a passionate interest in sustainability, along with 15 years CEO experience in the NGO sector having transitioned a member-based volunteer organisation into a major national advocacy and influencing body. Keith will continue to be Acting CEO until mid-February and is contactable on firstname.lastname@example.org or 9374 3333. During this time Keith will continue to take a lead role in preparing our NLP2 submission. From February 20th 2018 Keith will move into the role of Chief Operations Officer as Paul commences as CEO. We thank Keith for so ably stepping into the Acting CEO role during this important time.
Through these appointments we look forward to continuing to expand Perth NRM and provide new opportunities to grow our knowledge and skills together with all our stakeholders. These changes will enable a focus on our strategic goals that include NRM delivery, funding diversification, being a knowledge hub for urban NRM and engaging more with indigenous and youth stakeholders in the NRM space.
