North East Water has appointed Duduroa and Yorta Yorta man Johnny Murray as an independent Aboriginal delegate to the Corporation’s Board of directors.
Mr Murray has been appointed for a 12 month period and is the organisation’s second Aboriginal delegate engaged since 2019.
Chair, Cath Botta, said Johnny has extensive experience working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across the country.
“Johnny will be able to provide insight into matters relating to urban water management and its connection to Traditional Owners. It’s also an opportunity for him to consider a future full directorship within the water sector," Ms Botta said.
“Not only does the delegate role provide greater perspectives in the Corporation’s strategic discussions, it also continues to strengthen our relationships with Aboriginal communities.
I am extremely excited that Johnny is joining our team and I’m looking forward to his first Board next week.”
