Andrew and Bron Ballesty

On Friday, April 8th, Andrew Ballesty finished his work as MSC Business Manager and Provincial Bursar. He moves to being Business Manager at St Pius X College, Chatswood.




“When I came to work as the first lay Business Manager on the 3rd July 2000, Bob Irwin msc gave me a 1 year contract so as not to damage my career by having me stay too long. How ironic that now seems. One year became three, and three became permanent as the complexity and diversity became greater than either of us could have foreseen. It has been quite a journey for me personally and indeed for the whole Province. I am thankful for it all in what I have often said became “one heck of a 1 year contract” now spanning almost 11 years.”

“Indeed as a sign of how much life has changed for me, when I came Bron was pregnant with our first child. That child is now my 10 year old son Isaac, the eldest of our four beautiful children.”

Andrew had fine communication skills which members of the Province experienced with his explanations of financial matters at the Chapters of 2004 and 2010.

Appreciation was expressed at a farewell function at Treand House, Coogee, on the evening of April 8th.
