Alana Durnin added: “I feel privileged and excited to be returning to Cloch, as the new CEO. In light of the social and economic challenges facing communities, Cloch needs to be responsive and sympathetic to the needs of our customers and I believe I will bring strength and experience which will help deliver positive outcomes.
