Changing of the Guard

The Client Services Branch of the WA Office has a new acting Director, Wavne Rikkers. Wavne took up the post in mid October following Chris Spencer's departure from the ABS. Having joined the ABS in 1981, she has extensive experience working with clients of the ABS, most recently working as the head of the WA Client Liaison Unit for the past 5 years.

"As you can tell from my work history, I really enjoy the stimulation and challenge of working in the client servicing field," reports Wavne. "The advent of free publications on the ABS web site and the introduction of the ABS@ service into state government are two wonderful opportunities for us to reach more clients than ever before. My most important role is continuing to raise awareness of our statistics across the community and ensuring we provide an excellent service to all users of ABS products and services."

Wavne believes 2006 will be an exciting year, not only because of the Census, but with an escalating number of clients accessing ABS data for free and needing statistical training or assistance from the client services team. If you would like Wavne or a member of client services to visit your agency to talk about ABS statistics, please drop her an email or give her a call.
