Welcome to Jason and Andrew, Farewell Monique!

CCAA welcomed Jason Kuchel as its new State Director for NSW & SA on 25 February 2019.

Jason joins us from the Wakefield Regional Council where he served as the CEO, prior to which he was Chief Executive of the South Australian Chamber of Mines and Energy (SACOME) from 2007-2016 where he developed a sound understanding of the earth resources sector and the surrounding regulatory environment. Jason also has a background in Civil Engineering and has designed concrete structures early on in his career. Jason is looking forward to getting to know all members in NSW and is contactable at Jason.Kuchel@ccaa.com.au or 0448 848 848.

Prior to Christmas, CCAA also welcomed Andrew Jefferies to the role of Industry Relations & National Policy Manager. Andrew was previously the Policy & Projects Manager for the National Electrical and Communications Association (NECA). In 2017, Andrew was elected to the City of Parramatta Council, having served two previous terms at The Hills Shire Council and as its Mayor. Andrew may be contacted at Andrew.Jefferies@ccaa.com.au or 9667 8325.

Sadly, at the end of January, we farewelled Monique Andrew, following her decision to re-establish her life back in New Zealand. Monique developed strong and effective relations with industry and government and achieved a range of important outcomes for the sector.  She leaves CCAA with our very best wishes and we thank Monique for her contribution to our industry.
