Chief Executive Garry Poole has announced the senior management team for Tauranga City Council. The team includes three new appointments, with Christine Jones the only existing member to remain.
The new team is:
Jaine Lovell-Gadd, General Manager: Organisational Services
Ian Gooden, General Manager: Infrastructure Services
Louise Miller, General Manager: Community and Environmental Services
Christine Jones, General Manager: Strategy Group
Mr Poole said the appointments were the result of a robust recruitment process. The successful candidates were chosen for the range of skills and experience they will bring to the team in order to lead the Council as it moves forward, he said.
"The nature of Tauranga as a desirable place to live and work meant that we had an extremely strong group of candidates for these positions. Each of these four individuals is outstanding in their field and I am looking forward to bringing them together to complete the organisation review implementation process and to begin working to achieve the outcomes for this city that its residents desire.
Existing City Services Group Manager, Ian McDonald and Customer and Environmental Services Group Manager Peter Frawley will be finishing at TCC today.
Mr Poole said these two senior managers have provided great service to their community and should be proud of their achievements - and particularly their professionalism throughout the organisation review process.
