The great news for all our Clients and the RWC team is that, through his family company, Mitch will assume ownership of RWC on 1 July 2019, ensuring that the RWC Team will continue to be able to provide uninterrupted client-focussed consultancy services and project delivery well into the future. Rob and Cindy Corkery will remain with RWC beyond that date.
