APSCo Australia Managing Director Lesley Horsburgh has today announced the outcome of the Association’s Representative Committee Director Election.

Jason Trevethick, Managing Director of Paxus and Chair of the Association and long standing Director Nick Bacon of Clicks IT have stepped down after both completing two terms on the Committee.

Stephen Smith, CEO of Sirius People has been nominated to the role of Chair for APSCo Australia, with Bronwyn Murphy, Head of Operational Risk, Medacs Global Group Australasia to continue as Vice Chair.

In making the announcement, Lesley Horsburgh acknowledged Jason’s commitment to the Association.

She said, “Jason has been instrumental in driving the success of APSCo and delivering on the Association’s strategy to diversify and raise the profile of the value it drives across the white collar professional recruitment agency sector.”

She went to acknowledge the long history and commitment of Nick Bacon and Clicks IT.
“Nick and the Clicks IT business as a whole have been long term supporters of APSCo and the input and IT market knowledge they have embedded into the Association has and always will be highly valued within APSCo.”

“We are delighted that for the first time the APSCo Representative Committee has fifty/fifty gender balance and a broader geographical representation. This will no doubt help us to deliver on our strategy for the years to come and drive greater engagement among our regional members.

“I’m thrilled to have such a knowledgeable and engaged Committee and am very much looking forward to working with all of them,” added Lesley Horsburgh.
