Christine Welsh takes over from Kris Parker.February 22, 2013 4:28am
A changing of the guard has taken place at the Seymour SES unit.
Former unit controller Kris Parker has stood down and handed the reins to Christine Welsh.
Mr Parker has had to relinquish the role as he now has a full-time paid role with VICSES in Benalla as trainer for the North East region.
He had been Seymour unit controller since December 2010.
During that time the Seymour Unit has undergone a number of changes such as new equipment, upgraded facilities and a modernised approach to emergency management within the confines of the Australasian Inter-Service Incident Management System.
The Seymour Unit has also seen great advances in intra-personal and inter-unit co-operation.
Mr Parker said Ms Welsh had undergone a number of advanced leadership development courses that had seen her identify and develop her own leadership style and technique.
As the previous deputy unit controller, she received mentoring and has an excellent understanding of what is required to run a unit as dynamic as Seymour.
She is well suited to fulfil the role and becomes only the second woman in charge in the Seymour unit’s 36-year history.
‘‘We wish Christine and the VICSES Seymour team all the best for the future,’’ Mr Parker said.
