NATIVE TITLE SERVICES GOLDFIELDS ANNOUNCES BOARD MEMBERS AND CEO
Native Title Services Goldfields (NTSG) announced today the appointment of Ms Sharon Reynolds and Mr Kado Muir as directors and Mr David Lanagan as its CEO.
NTSG is a newly formed public company limited by guarantee. It is currently negotiating with the National Indigenous Australians Agency on providing native title services in the Goldfields region.
Mr Lanagan has worked in the native title sector for more than 15 years and has developed strong links with the traditional owners of the Goldfields region. He has worked for the Western Australian Government, the Goldfields Land and Sea Council and is currently employed by Grant Thornton Australia, the interim native title service provider for the Goldfields region. Mr Lanagan was selected after a competitive recruitment process and will commence in the role in coming weeks.
The newly appointed directors, Ms Sharon Reynolds and Mr Kado Muir are skilled directors as well as traditional owners from the Goldfields region. They have worked in the native title and resources sector for many years and join existing directors, Mr Terry Grose (Chair), Dr Carolyn Tan and the Hon Fred Chaney AO.
‘NTSG is now able to recruit staff so that it will be in a position to deliver high quality services to the traditional owners of the Goldfields region. Its focus will be on consulting with and listening to traditional owners about their aspirations for their land and sea country’, said Mr David Lanagan. ‘There are still many opportunities in the region for Aboriginal people to secure control of their traditional lands through determinations, consultation and negotiated outcomes.’
Consultation meetings will be held by NTSG throughout the Goldfields region as soon as possible.
NTSG will have offices in Kalgoorlie and Perth. The company is currently in the process of securing premises and recruiting staff. Grant Thornton will continue as the interim native title service provider until NTSG is fully operational.
