The NSW Minister for Primary industries, Niall Blair, has appointed Jason Masters as Administrator of Rookwood General Cemeteries Reserve Trust (RGCRT). Effective for 12 months, commencing 1 July 2016, Mr. Masters will be responsible for governing the affairs of the Trust.
This followed the resignation of the Chair and some Board Directors meaning the Board was no longer able to be legally constituted.
The Trust is not ‘in administration’ in relation to its finances. The Trust is cash flow positive, investments are stable and the Perpetuity Fund which will maintain the cemetery into the future is prospering.
There are no current financial impediments to the ongoing and normal operations of the organisation.
