Penrith panthers boosted by return of peter wallace and josh maes
The Australian government has restored a small, family-owned, farm-based industry that has been at the centre of political wrangling and controversy after its chief executive was dismissed by the Labor Government for «unjustified» behaviour.
Pauline Wallace has been appointed the first permanent chief executive of the Peter Wallace and Sons Pty Ltd. She will be paid $600,000 for three years.
Mr Wallace was the state secretary in the federal Coalition, until he left the Opposition last year amid a public spat with the then minister for mining John Stone.
«We are so happy. It’s so good news for the industry,» Mr Wallace said of the reinstatement of the industry and the ability of his successors to carry out their orders.
A Labor Party spokesman said Ms Wallace would카지노 사이트 continue to make decisions as acting chief executive, and had not resigned.
A spokesman for Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews said Ms Wallace «remains in good standing with our industry and government».
«She has had several opportunities to move past her conflict of interest by stepping down and that has been the right decision for Victoria,» the spokesman said.
Ms Wallace’s two boys were among the seven people to be paid $50,000 bonuses over the last 12 months of 2014.
He started out as a taxi driver before his father, an engineer, took up the same path more than 20 years ago and Mr Wallace said it paid off.
«My dad was one of the first people I heard about going into farming — and eventually started his own business back in 1985 at the age of 14.»
«I’ve been a really good business partner since 1986, and my business has helped put about $30 million (into the local community),» he said.
«And that’s all with very little and that’s the kind of business we want to put into the community, to help people.
«We do have some competition out there to take up jobs. I think the industry is great for both individuals and businesses, so that’s what we look for.»
