M&T Resources appoints regional director for Victoria
Australia’s M&T Resources has appointed Jemma Dougall as new regional director for Victoria. Dougall takes over from Ken Kwan, who recently left the business after five years to pursue a career change.
Dougall joined M&T Resources in 2012 and has accomplished great success over the last five years. She has done an exceptional job building business alongside SMS Management & Technology, and has achieved an excellent track record as top biller for new business and overall contribution margin four years running.
For Dougall, her passion lies in the opportunity to make a difference and to work in real partnership with diverse talent and organisations.
Dougall said, “I feel honoured to be stepping into the position of regional director in a company with such an awesome culture, where people are down-to-earth and have the same passion for people as I do. As Regional Director, I want to empower the team, allow ownership and coach them to success. Their success will mean I have done my job. I want the team to have a voice – both individually and collectively – branding ourselves for want to be known for in the market.”
She will continue to support M&T’s strong company culture, balancing professionalism and enjoyment within her team. Another priority will be taking M&T Resources’ CSR initiatives to new heights, through running a team volunteering program to help skilled migrants to find employment in the Australian market.
Chris Sandham, managing director at M&T Resources, added, “We are very proud that Jemma accepted the offer to be the M&T Resources Regional Director. Jemma has been an integral part of the SMS M&T team, and has recently returned from taking 12 months off to bring her beautiful daughter in to this world. Jemma has consistently accomplished great success and been both a role model and a leader to her colleagues in Melbourne, as well as to the wider M&T team. It is now a natural progression for Jemma to transition into the role of Regional Director, leading the strategy and innovation for M&T’s presence in Victoria.”
Dougall comes from a long career in recruitment, starting her own business in New Zealand at the age of 21. She subsequently worked across human resources and recruitment in New Zealand and Edinburgh, UK, before relocating to Melbourne nine years ago. She has built up excellent foundations and a real presence in the VIC market working for some of Australia’s leading organisations.
