The end of an historic era for CLC

The beginning of 2019 will mark a change of leadership for the Central Land Council, with Joe Martin-Jard stepping into his new position as Chief Executive Officer.

I would like to formally recognise David Ross for his long and illustrious career with the CLC. I greatly enjoyed working closely with him when we were both at the Central Land Council.  I have always had a deep respect for his dedication, work ethic and unwavering passion for First Nations rights in Central Australia, and I am proud to be his friend and supporter.

Mr Ross’ career spans decades with the CLC, as he worked his way up from his first position as council clerk. A lifelong fighter for land rights, he will be sorely missed.

Mr Martin-Jard’s impressive career, from community development to Indigenous medical services to the Public Service, speaks to his capability to excel in this role.

I look forward to working with Mr Martin-Jard to both honour the past achievements of David Ross and create further opportunities for the CLC.  

Thank you Rossy for your outstanding work, and welcome to the team Mr. Martin-Jard.
