Mildura Rural City Council has named an Acting CEO to take over from interim CEO Phil Shanahan.

Martin Hawson, currently Council’s General Manager Community, will take up the position on Friday 6 August, taking over from Mr Shanahan, who has been in the position temporarily since May.

Mildura Rural City Council will restart the process to recruit and appoint a permanent CEO later in 2021.

Mildura Mayor, Jason Modica, said Mr Hawson is a highly experienced General Manager who will hit the ground running.

“Martin brings over 20 years of local government experience,” Cr Modica said.

“His existing relationships and insight to key Council priorities and projects will make for a smooth transition.”

Cr Modica acknowledged the contributions of interim CEO Phil Shanahan and said Councillors were looking forward to continuing to work with Mr Hawson in the coming months.

“We are confident Martin will support both Councillors and staff as we work to deliver important services, programs and infrastructure for the community,” Cr Modica said.
