New Asset Manager wins community award

Posted on 26 Feb 2018

Dambimangari’s newly appointed Asset Manager, Craig Dunster has received an Australia Day acknowledgement from the Shire of Derby West Kimberley for his work in the community.

He was presented with a certificate of appreciation from the Shire President, Mr Geoff Haerewa, at a function on Australia Day this year. The award recognises his extensive community service to the school P&F, the Rodeo Club, Cubs and junior cricket.

He was appointed by Dambimangari to take over from Andrew Anderson who left Derby to return to Scotland with his wife Amanda last year.

As Asset manager, Craig will be planning the long term management of the group’s major infrastructure items such as boats, vehicles, buildings and other equipment.

He is a civil engineer with extensive experience in the Kimberley Region, including a stint with the Centre for Appropriate Technology, managing infrastructure, providing municipal services, construction and maintenance contracts for a number of Aboriginal communities.

Craig has lived in Derby since 2003 and is married to Joss, a Royal Flying Doctor Service flight nurse. Craig and Joss have a 10-year-old daughter Isabel.

For the last seven years, he has operated his own civil engineering consulting business.

Looking ahead, Craig believes the Dambimangari’s community, environmental and economic programs are likely to become significant contributors to the Kimberley Region.

“I believe the Dambimangari Group has the potential to become a much larger organisation – and I’m looking forward to working with the staff and members,” he said.
