A long term media professional, Rod initially found his way into a media career simply by following his passion for music and becoming a rock critic in London. Before he knew it, he became a magazine publishing professional working his way from graphic artist to editor to general manager of a joint venture youth culture publishing company in Sydney.
A change of pace saw Rod move into high level corporate publishing as Publishing Manager then Associate Publisher with a client base featuring Australia’s Top 500 companies and all levels of government and industry groups.
Another life change saw Rod and his wife make the tree change to beautiful Bellingen at the beginning of 2001 where he continued to consult for a couple of years. For the past 10 years Rod has been employed as an Account Manager for what is now Australia’s largest broadcast media company, Southern Cross Austereo, selling, creating and implementing radio and TV marketing solutions to a broad range of local businesses on the Coffs Coast.
Rod has been on the Board of R&R Care for 4 years, and is the current Chairman of the Board.
“R&R gave me my first real opportunity to work in a new industry following my career change. I value the opportunity that you extended, the way in which everyone at R&R including Admin, Coordinators and fellow Support Workers welcomed the new greenhorn and the valuable experience gained. ”
“Wonderful organisation doing some great programs and initiatives.”
“Great place to work with awesome staff and clients keep up the good work”
“I am very grateful and blessed that I have been part of a wonderful service during my time at R&R Disability Services.”
I’m emailing today to tell you how great my support worker is; not only is he very patient, helpful and quick-thinking, but he’s also the most friendly worker I’ve had to date. Whenever I’m not feeling my best, he seems to see that and not push me to do things that I’d otherwise be willing to do, however when I am feeling able to do things, he encourages me to do it myself, he teaches me how to do it if I’m not understanding, or congratulates me when I do it by myself.
Just wanted to thank you for the amazing support staff you have put into our home to help with our daughter . One outstanding support worker supported her in such a professional manner , and was not afraid to help in any way she could .
