Shire welcomes new CEO
Mar 15 2017
The Shire of Ashburton Council welcomed Mr Dale Stewart at yesterday’s Ordinary Meeting of Council to the position of Acting CEO. Council also took the opportunity to farewell Neil Hartley, who has resigned from the role and is returning to Perth.
Mr Stewart will fill the role for six months, during which time the recruitment process will be undertaken to formally appoint a new Chief Executive Officer.
Shire President Kerry White said that Mr Stewart has over 31 years experience in Local Government and his high level of qualifications are well suited to managing the Shire’s operations throughout this period.
“Council are pleased to welcome Dale to the Shire and are confident his vast career experience will be valuable as the Shire continues to progress our financial and strategic plans,” said Cr White. “We would also like to extend our thanks to Neil Hartley for his 3 years of service and for his contribution to the Shire’s achievements during this time.”
