Tracey acknowledges the work of preveious CEO Monica Meulengraaf and her husband John Meulengraaf who both retired at the end of June 2018. The foundations they have both built at MT&E are great to see, and the team look forward to growing these further.

Tracey has always had a strong focus on building strong relationships within workplaces and feels that it is vital for employees to feel supported, to receive appropriate training and are encouraged to learn and extend their skills and knowledge. Tracey will endeavour to bring this focus to MT&E and to continue to build relationships with future Apprentices, Trainees, Employees, Host Employers and the community.
