Kaipara District Council's newly appointed chief executive Graham Sibery says he is looking forward to being part of and contributing to the Kaipara community.
Mr Sibery began his tenure last week, bringing extensive experience in the public and private sectors in service delivery, investment infrastructure projects and major contracts.
"I am keen to hear from people about their views of what works and what could be improved, what changes they would like to see in their communities," he said.
"Kaipara is a large, diverse district, with huge potential.
"I want to meet our business people, residents and iwi, to get to know the people I am working for and take their views on board. With the new council to be elected in October, Kaipara is heading in a good direction, building on the work of the past led by the commissioners. I appreciate having this opportunity to be part of it."
