Leadership Changes at TDC
Thamarrurr Development Corporation (TDC) has started the new year with a new leadership
structure with the appointment of the first ever Kardu Kumparra (person in-front).
Tobias Nganbe has moved from the role of CEO which he has successfully held for the last 3
years into the newly created role at the head of the organisation. This new role will allow Tobias
to continue to fulfil important organisational and community leadership duties, as well as
allowing time for a good balance of personal and other professional interests.
During the time Tobias has been CEO, TDC has strengthened its financial and operational
performance and last year was awarded the Chief Ministers Award for Aboriginal Business’s at
the NT Chamber of Commerce Trade and Business Awards.
“Its time for me to make sure I am giving the time and attention to all the issues that are
important to me and my family” Tobias said. “I will continue to support the leadership role that
TDC plays within the region and I look forward to working with the team in my new role”.
Scott McIntyre has been appointed as CEO after working as the TDC General Manager for the
last two and a half years. Scott has worked with the Wadeye community for 19 years and brings
a mixture of community, government and private business experience.
“We are excited and very happy to be working with Tobias and Scott in their new roles and we
look forward very much to continuing the great work of TDC in supporting the community
and region to grow at the direction of the Traditional Owners” TDC Chairperson Ethelrita
The new arrangements at TDC took effect on January the 7th.
