The CEO of the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority, Chris Norman, has resigned to take up a new job in Queensland.
Mr Norman was only the second chief executive of the government funded authority, following Bill O'Kane, in 2009.
Mr Norman leaves on February 7 and will take on the role as CEO for The Natural Resource Management Regional Queensland, based in Brisbane.
An agricultural scientist, he worked with the Department of Primary Industries and has spent more than 30 years in the region.
The NRM Regions Queensland supports 12 regional NRM groups to deliver sustainability outcomes by coordinating statewide programs, providing mentoring and leadership, advocacy for improved investment in natural resource management, and identifying areas for training and improvement.
The Goulburn Broken CMA board is starting a recruitment process to replace Mr Norman.
The acting CEO is current deputy, Carl Walters.
