Trevor Rethamel is currently the Owner/Director of a Safety/Project Management consultancy company based in Townsville. He started his working career in Queensland Rail as a Trade’s Person progressing to a Depot Manager then on to the Management team of QR Nationals Strategy and Business Improvement.
In February 2014, Trevor’s youngest daughter Lucy was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia (ALL). This was the start of Trevor and his family’s experience with CCS.
Trevor’s wife Tracey and Lucy relocated to CCS on a permanent basis for ten (10) months where he and his eldest daughters, Chloe and Sophie visited on a regular basis. When Trevor visited CCS, he was an active part of the CCS family assisting where he could during his family stay.
Trevor and Tracey were overwhelmed by the service and support they received during their stay at CCS and decide that this was a charity they needed to get involved in. Both became CCS Family ambassadors for the Townsville region and in September 2015, Trevor joined the CCS Board. In January 2016, he stepped into the role of Interim CCS President.
Trevor’s work experiences as a Tradesman, a Manager, and a Project Manager progressing to owning his own company, along with being from an oncology family, gives Trevor the right business nous and compassion that it requires to be leading the current CCS Board.
Trevor prides himself on being able to communicate with those around him, is easily approachable and eager to listen to ideas that can assist CCS in improving its services for all past and current CCS families.
