LOCKMORE Financial Services Limited, trading as Elmore/Lockington/Rochester Community Bank, has welcomed three new directors and said goodbye to another.
Lockmore chairman Brad Drust welcomed the new directors to the board at the company’s recent annual general meeting.
‘‘We are delighted to announce the appointment of Alan Darbyshire, Beck Crawford and Tim Rasmussen to the Lockmore Financial Ltd. board,’’ he said.
‘‘All three new directors came to us with a wide range of skills and experience that will assist us to deliver positive business outcomes and continue to grow our business.
‘‘Alan, Beck and Tim also understand the fabric of our local communities and will assist us to partner with other groups and organisations for success and enable the big ideas in our communities.’’
A well known Rochester local, Alan has added this directorship to his roles on the Rochester and Elmore District Health Service board and as the Rochester Business Network treasurer, continuing to give back to the community.
‘‘I love this local community and I love being able to share my skills with a board who supports the fabric of the community,’’ he said.
‘‘It’s a win-win for us all.’’
Beck Crawford is similarly driven to help her community.
‘‘I am excited by this fantastic, exclusive opportunity to support individuals and groups whom I may have never been involved in without being a director on this community board,’’ she said.
Tim Rasmussen was born and bred in Rochy and is excited to be on board.
‘‘Having just moved back to Rochy, I will be heavily involved in junior sport through my children and see being on the board of the Bendigo Bank as a way to get involved with the broader community,’’ he said.
The evening saw the retirement of Sandra Peacock, who joined the board in 2011.
Other continuing board members include Brad Drust (Elmore), Cori Holmberg (Elmore), Robyn Maclean (Elmore), Graeme Wood (Lockington) and Patrick Rochford (Tennyson).
