From 1st August 2022, DD Group (DDG) is pleased to announce the appointment of Shane Vassallo as Regional Operations Manager and Renee Vassallo as Operations Manager for their growing Mount Isa branch.

This husband-and-wife dynamic duo with over 35 years combined experience in the safety industry, will draw on learnings from recent roles within mine rescue, gas solutions and wider industrial safety industry, making them perfect candidates to head up the growing Mount Isa branch, DDG CEO John Macnamara explains.

“At DDG, we understand the importance of good people who contribute to the success of our business,” Mr Macnamara said.

“People matter to us, and it’s important that we’re bringing on board new team members that align with our values, and those that will work tirelessly with our business partners to help foster and grow a culture of safety in support of our goal of Zero Harm.”

With over 14 years’ experience working throughout Northwest Queensland, Shane and Renee are highly experienced in understanding the local needs, which is the backbone of DDG’s success throughout, not only Mount Isa region, but their growing footprint across Australia.

“It’s not just the extensive experience and expertise that Shane and Renee bring to the table that make us extremely excited to welcome them to the team.

“With a genuine passion and unapologetic commitment to their local community, supported by a longstanding reputation forming solution-based and value-driven partnerships, both Shane and Renee already live and breathe the DDG values, with a reputable track-record of their commitment to safety and ensuring staff get home safely to their loved ones.”

For Shane, the decision to join the growing DDG team as Regional Operations Manager, was the logical next move.

“DDG has grown from a small family-owned company to become known as one of Australia’s most collaborative and reliable suppliers in the civil and construction sectors.

“With a growing national footprint and the expansion of operations across various sectors, it’s truly an exciting time for DDG and both Renee and I are excited to play a role in the next stage of the company’s journey.” Shane continued.
