Onwards and upwards for local waste manager

A family relocation to the Barwon region has coincided with a new career opportunity for Goulburn Valley Waste and Resource Recovery Group Operations Manager Brad Montgomery. After a fifteen-year stint in regional waste management roles, family and business interests have lured Brad and his family from Dookie to Paraparap near Torquay.
GVWRRG Chair Seema Abdullah was pleased to note Mr Montgomery’s achievements in supporting local government and industry in delivering waste management and recycling services and facilities.
“With significant reforms taking place in the recycling and environment protection space since China’s restrictions on imports of Australian recyclables in 2017, the sector needs committed professionals in influential roles and we know Brad will provide that,” Ms Abdullah said.
GVWRRG Executive Officer Nick Nagle congratulated Mr Montgomery on his new position and thanked him for his contribution and service to the GVWRRG.
“With Brad commencing as Strategic Advisor at the Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Group in early December, we are wrapped for him that he has a new challenge and are pleased to be able to continue to work with him in a different capacity,” Mr Nagle said.
“Brad has been a linchpin of our small organisation and we are sad to see him move on. We are pleased however that he is not lost to the resource recovery sector, particularly with new policy settings soon to be announced for Victoria,” Mr Nagle said.
In signing off at a recent farewell in his honour, Mr Montgomery was reflective of his career, “I have really enjoyed working with the Board and the partner councils. Waste Management has become a very dynamic industry and the Goulburn Valley has been a leader in many facets and is undertaking great planning for the future.”
