Organisations are dynamic entities that need to respond to changes in their industry, the
regulatory environment, the technologies they either deliver or utilise, and their relationships
with suppliers and customers in achieving their strategic objectives. Regardless of whether

THE current Command Warrant
Officer in Fleet Command, WO Martin
Holzberger, will be the next Warrant
Officer of the Navy.
Chief of Navy VADM Ray Griggs
made the announcement in an all-shore
signal on April 18.
WO Holzberger will assume the
position in mid-July, after WO-N Mark
Tandy's three-and-a-half year tenure.
VADM Griggs said it was heartening
to see the quality and depth in Navy's
warrant officer community, making his
final selection a very difficult one.
"Those who were interviewed, and
indeed all who put their names forward,
were of an extremely high standard
and I was impressed by their attitude,
foresight, professionalism and strategic
vision," VADM Griggs said.
"Most impressive was their commit-
ment to New Generation Navy and their
desire to drive Navy forward."
WO Holzberger has witnessed much
change during his 25 years in Navy, hav-
ing had an extensive background in the
He also deployed to the Middle East
as the Ship's Warrant Officer on HMAS
He has held the position of Command
Warrant Officer in Fleet Command since
VADM Griggs said WO Holzberger
would excel in representing the issues
important to sailors, while also carrying
CN's message when he could not physi-
cally do so.
"I very much look forward to having

CHIEF of Navy VADM Ray
Griggs has announced that Mrs
Maureen Banks has agreed to be
the launching and naming lady for
HMAS Adelaide III.
The future HMAS Adelaide will
be the second Amphibious Assault
Ship Landing Helicopter Dock
(LHD) to be launched. The first of
class, the future HMAS Canberra,
was launched in February 2010.
Since 1811, it has been tradi-
tional for a prominent woman to
be selected to launch Navy war-
ships. The launching lady launches
and names the ship and remains as
the ship's sponsor throughout its
period in commission.
Mrs Banks is the widow of
CAPT Norman Banks, who com-
manded HMAS Adelaide II, a
guided-missile frigate, on active
service. The ship was decommis-
sioned in January 2008.
HMAS Adelaide II's major
period of service occurred in late
2001 when the ship deployed to
the Persian Gulf as part of the
International Coalition against
CAPT Banks was still a serv-
ing officer when he passed away in
December 2011 after a long battle
Mrs Banks was stunned, but
honoured and excited to be invited
to be part of the launch ceremony.
"This is very significant to me
as it will be a great tribute to my
husband," she said.
"It is a wonderful way to hon-
our his devoted service to the Navy,
and his memory.
"I am very much looking for-
ward to it."
Mrs Banks, who is originally
from the United States, also has
another connection to the history of
"I have an aunt who served as
a nurse in the US Navy for many
years and sometime during those
years she attended a reception on
the first HMAS Adelaide, a mem-
ory which she shared with us after
Norm had been selected for com-
mand on HMAS Adelaide."
The launch of HMAS Adelaide
is scheduled to occur in Ferrol,
Spain on July 4.

senior leadership group. I know he has
a tremendous contribution to make,"
VADM Griggs said.
Reflecting on his time as WO-N,
Mark Tandy said he could not believe
how fast his time as the most senior sail-
or and sailors' advocate had passed.
"It has been great to witness our
enlisted leaders (LS to WO) being
empowered by the Chief of Navy to
make a difference in re-shaping Navy,"
WO-N Tandy said.
"The New Generation Navy program
and Strategic Reform Program have
been the main focus during my tenure
and both have been challenging but also
"I have also enjoyed meeting many of
you during the last three-and-a-bit years
and I would like to take this opportunity
to wish you and your families all the best
for the future."
INCOMING: WO Martin Holzberger
will be the next WO-N.
