New ABS Regional Director for Northern Territory

The Northern Territory has a new Regional Director of the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS).

Chris Libreri has taken up the position today. He replaces Robyn Elliott who has retired after a distinguished ABS career spanning over twenty years.

"I see my role as leading the Northern Territory office in delivering high quality statistics," Mr Libreri said. "The ABS has always aimed to provide the best quality statistics for the Territory in its areas of responsibility. I am also very keen to keep developing the capabilities of regional office staff and Territory statisticians."

"The ABS has very constructive working relationships with the NT Government and local business and my role is to ensure the ABS continues to be responsive to the needs of our clients."

The varied experience Chris has gained in the ABS makes him ideally suited to the challenging role of Regional Director.

Chris joined the ABS in 1980. Prior to his current appointment he was Director of Service Industry Statistics Production; the National Centre for Crime and Justice Statistics; Business Frames; and Corporate & Client Services Branches - all in the Victorian Office.

He has previously worked in Social Analysis, Public Finance Statistics, Population Survey Operations and the Central Marketing areas of the ABS, including a stint in ABS central office in Canberra. He has completed post-graduate qualifications in Management (University of Canberra) and Statistics (Victoria University).
