The C-Res Board has welcomed two new members, Tony Fitzpatrick and Daniel Katz. This week, our new board members came together for the first time in Mackay. We look forward to the innovative ideas and fresh perspectives Tony and Daniel will bring to our initiatives – delivering the Local Buying Program and Local Buying Foundations across NSW, QLD, SA and WA.
Meet our new directors:
