Shire CEO announces retirement.
Moyne Shire Chief Executive Officer David Madden has announced his retirement after seven years in the position.
Mr Madden said that the decision to retire was made after a recent holiday to the mid north coast of NSW.
“The trip in a 1974 Kombi was on my bucket list: I’ve decided to make that list one of my priorities. “Now is the time to travel more and learn about life away from work.”
After seven years with Moyne Shire and over 35 years in local government, Mr Madden said he was proud to reflect on both the achievements and the challenges overcome during his tenure.
“The financial position of council is now stable and will remain so for many years to come. “I am pleased that the shire has coped so well with the pressure of rate capping and other financial challenges, yet continues to deliver a range of services and infrastructure that the community expects,” said Mr Madden.
“I have had the privilege of overseeing an organisation with teams of well qualified, skilful and passionate staff. “I also acknowledge the efforts of the councillors past and present. We are fortunate to have had strong community leaders. There have been robust discussions and differing opinions, which has led to us achieving some amazing outcomes.”
