Welcome from Alan Hubbard
On 1 December this year, Alan Hubbard will take up the position of Regional Director in the WA Office. Alan said he is looking forward to the challenge of contributing to a new area of activity and to working with a new team of people. “I am particularly pleased to be coming into an organisation that is noted for the high standard of its products and for the professional approach of its staff”.
In recent years Alan has worked as a division head in the WA Department for Planning and Infrastructure and one of its antecedent organisations, the Department of Transport. In the 1980s, Alan held several positions in the economic policy area of the WA Treasury Department. Prior to joining the WA Treasury he worked in Canberra as an economist with the Industries Assistance Commission (now the Productivity Commission) for five years before returning to Perth for family reasons.
Alan's personal interests revolve around his family and friends and a range of outdoor activities. His immediate family comprises his wife, three children, and an ageing dog. In summer when the sea breeze is blowing he may be found on a sailboard off Leighton beach and in winter he likes to camp in the bush up north.
