The wait is over and we have a new CEO.
And after scouring the country for the best candidate, receiving some 50 odd quality applications, we found that the best candidate was in our midst all along.
Peter Tsokas, our current General Manager of City Development, was the successful candidate.
He takes up his duties on the 21st November after the current CEO’s retirement becomes effective, on the 18th November.
I take this opportunity to join with the Mayor and congratulate peter on his appointment. Peter presents as a very relatable person, a person with ambition for this job, the job he has now secured. In my short time on Council I have had the opportunity to speak with on a number of matters and believe him to be a person of vision.
All of these attributes I believe to be important for an incoming CEO.
I look forward to working with him and good luck mate!
