Marine Rescue NSW Operational Executive
Commissioner Stacey Tannos ESM
Commissioner Tannos was appointed to lead MRNSW in July 2011. After more than 20 years in the NSW emergency services sector, most recently as the Chief Executive of Emergency Management NSW and the inaugural State Emergency Recovery Controller, he brings a great depth of knowledge and experience to the organisation. He has spent much of his career working with volunteer emergency services, advocating for improved resources, funding, training and recognition for volunteers and is committed to continuing this work to advance the interests of MRNSW and its members.
Deputy Commissioner Mueller was appointed in July 2010, bringing with him more than 24 years of military experience as a senior Army officer, including six years working with the Army Reserve. He left the Army in 2000, joining the Office for Emergency Services – now the Ministry for Police and Emergency Services - where he spent 10 years as Executive Officer to the State Rescue Board of NSW (SRB) and the NSW State Emergency Management Committee (SEMC). In 2009, he was appointed Director, Response and Recovery, in Emergency Management NSW. His experience in strategic and operational planning, policy development, training and rescue complements the extensive technical knowledge and experience throughout MRNSW, in its Units, at the Regional level with the Regional Coordinators, Headquarters staff and the MRNSW Board.
A Regional Coordinator has been appointed for each of the six Marine Rescue NSW operating regions. These volunteer officers give their time to assist Unit executives and volunteers with the administrative, training and operational workload involved in providing our services on the water. They are:
Northern Rivers – Steve Reading
Mid North Coast – John Murray
Hunter/Central Coast – Neil Grieves
Greater Sydney – Chris Gillett
Illawarra – Bruce Mitchell
Monaro – Bob Herbert
