New SES Chief Officer Announced


A new SES Chief Officer has been announced — more than 14 months after the ESA Commissioner left the role.

Georgeina Whelan became the Commissioner in October last year, her replacement in the SES Anthony Draheim has today finally been unveiled.

He brings over 30 years’ experience in the Australian Army, most recently as Chief of Staff for the Royal Military College of Australia. He has been with the ACTESA since January this year as Director of Training Coordination and Management.

Jeff Butler and Superintendent Matt Shonk had been acting in the role since Ms Whelan’s elevation to the role of ESA Commissioner.
