I worked for Ric Wadrop in Darwin's NT Treasury from January 1989 to June 1995 (six and a half years), longer than for anyone. He was a good mentor and I have learned a lot from him. He tends to micro-manage technical details sometimes though! He is now retired and flying model airplanes in between games of golf in Darwin, Australia.
