Last year we added some extra manpower to the Education Relationship Management (ERM) team in the form of Jared Walley in our Melbourne office who now looks after the Vic, SA and Tasmanian universities. Up until then the team was a group of one – yours truly.
Australia is a big country and hard to properly service by one part-time person (yes I only work part-time – but don’t tell my wife!). Having Jared into the ERM role in the southern states allows me more time in the rest of the country, and frees me up to work on RMS assistance to universities.
Jared is doing a great job of representing the interests of his group of universities and I commend him for fitting in so well in such a short time.
That model has been further expanded with the appointment of David Rigter as full-time ERM based in our Sydney office and will be looking after universities in NSW, ACT and WA. (The longer term plan is to have a Perth office in case you are wondering about ‘why WA?’)
David joined us in April and I will do a more thorough introduction in the next issue. But we will most likely do a round of joint visits in the near future. David can be contacted on email@example.com
For now, welcome aboard Dave.
