Monday, January 21st, 2013 - National Electrical and Communications Association (NECA)
Australia’s peak electrical industry body the National Electrical and Communications Association (NECA) today announced the appointment of respected industry identity Mick Logan as Executive Director, Queensland.

Mick has extensive experience including working six years for the Queensland Electrical Safety Office in senior management roles and serving as a key member of the national Electrical Regulatory Advisory Council (ERAC) working on electrical safety, licensing, inspection, equipment and supply regulators.

NECA’s National Chief Executive Officer, James Tinslay said, “Mick brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to this new role.

“His knowledge of the electrical industry and the contacts he has built up over the years will prove a major asset for our members and will help NECA deal with local regulators in every state and other industry associations, as well as engaging with governments in the Asia Pacific region.”

During Mick’s time at the Queensland Electrical Safety Office he has built up knowledge of the state’s electrical industry across licensing, inspection and policy aspects of the regulation of NECA members. He also has knowledge and contacts outside government across industry associations and businesses involved in generation, distribution, installation and electrical equipment supply chains.

Prior to entering the electrical industry Mick had a senior role in Workplace Health and Safety Queensland and before that he spent 15 years in Industrial Relations at state and national level.

“The advantage of Mick’s other roles is that as well as giving NECA members electrical industry advice he can also help them make everyday sense of their increasing Occupational Health and Safety obligations and keep them abreast of their Fair Work Australia obligations on employee pay and conditions,” said Mr Tinslay.

Mick’s experience serving on ERAC has given him up to date knowledge of current issues including the National Occupational Licensing System, Australian Standards and the national electrical equipment safety system.

Mick is due to take over the role on 22 February from Guy Houghton who has been NECA Queensland’s Executive Director since its inception in 2010.

Mr Tinslay said, “Guy Houghton has left a mighty legacy for the Queensland electrical and communications industry for Mick to continue and I’d like to thank him for his dedication and vision and wish him well with his future endeavours.”
