Respected Indigenous support agency Morrgul today announced the appointment of Patrick Le Lievre as its new CEO.

Patrick joined Morrgul in May 2021 to work in business development. He was recruited with extensive commercial experience and a strong record of success with major Australian companies.

Morrgul’s Klari Kadar commented “Patrick was very strong in operations management, customer service, leadership and human resources. He also understood the ‘numbers’, a valuable attribute for Morrgul’s clients.”

“Over the last 11 months Patrick has demonstrated a unique ability to understand Morrgul’s business and its clients. A true people person, he has engaged at every level and quickly become a trusted and reliable asset”, Klari added.

The Morrgul board approved Patrick’s appointment as CEO at its March meeting.

Well renowned for being able to simultaneously juggle tasks, Patrick steps into the role full of energy and optimism.

“I am humbled to be given this opportunity. It is a great honour. Morrgul is a wonderful organisation with a track record of making positive differences to its indigenous clients and their families. I look forward to the challenges ahead and will work tirelessly to maintain the momentum to drive success”, Patrick said.

A Nyikina man, Patrick is proud of his Indigenous heritage and committed to work hard for all the Indigenous clients Morrgul services.

Originally from Derby, but now living with his young family in Broome, Patrick is well connected to the community and has recently appointed as president of the Broome Bulls Sporting Club.

Patrick concluded, “I have a big challenge, but my work will be made easier as I am surrounded by the skilled, experienced and passionate team that is Morrgul”.
