RWTA in search for new executive officer
Russell Sturzaker


Russell Sturzaker has left the position of executive officer of Refrigerated Warehouse and Transport Association of Australia Ltd (RWTA) and the search is on for his replacement.

Sturzaker arrived from the not-for-profit sector a little more than two years ago, replacing David Costelloe.

"Under Russell Sturzaker’s stewardship, this past year, a great deal of foundation work has been initiated," RWTA chairman David O’Brien says, quoting from his 2015-16 report.

"Russell has directed a complete overhaul of our association’s website; introduced Wild Apricot membership and event management software; developed a special Member’s Portal to allow members to access the vast array of association documents, now archived electronically.

"Russell has also initiated the development of a stand-alone website to better manage the complex elements of the association’s annual conferences.

"Members have benefited from the convenience and efficiencies associated with On Line Event Registration and On Line Payments and members can now gain access to the GCCA website directly, courtesy of a link established between our associations’ servers, during the past year.

"In addition to attending the networking breakfasts organised by the state divisions, Russell provided support and garnered sponsorships, to ensure that each function was well run and well attended."

A search for a replacement has been initiated, O’Brien adds, and the position is expected to be filled "early in the New Year’.
