Greater Geelong to proceed with search for new CEO

City of Greater Geelong Council municipal monitors, Prue Digby and Peter Dorling, have recommended that the Council proceed with its search for a new Chief Executive Officer.

“I have accepted this advice and the appointment process for the important position of council CEO will play a major role in restoring good governance to the City of Greater Geelong,” said Victorian Local Government Minister, Melissa Horne.

The monitors have advised the Victorian Government that the Council has implemented the necessary improvements to its processes to ensure the recruitment can progress in accordance with the Local Government Act.

“I appointed Ms Digby and Mr Dorling as municipal monitors on 24 January 2023 for a period of 12 months – they will provide advice to me and the council throughout their tenure and are required to provide a report at the end of their term,” said Minister Horne.

The monitors will continue to oversee the CEO appointment process and other governance matters under the terms of their reference.

The council has not had a permanent CEO since Martin Cutter departed in September 2022. Kaarina Phyland is currently the Council’s Acting CEO.
