Council appoints acting chief executive

 

Commissioners at the Kaipara District Council have announced that Dr Jill McPherson will take up the position of acting chief executive after the departure of current chief executive, Steve Ruru.

Mr Ruru will leave the council in October to become chief executive at Southland District Council.

Chair of Commissioners, John Robertson, said commissioners were mindful of the uncertainty created by the possible reorganisation of the Northland councils. This is a matter still before the Local Government Commission.

“We have decided not to begin a recruitment process until this reorganisation question is finally decided,” Mr Robertson said.

“This may be done by Christmas or take until mid-2015. It makes no sense to try to recruit for this important position when there is a possibility that there would not be a job. We are fortunate to have a person with the experience and skills of Dr Jill McPherson to fill this position in the meantime.”

Dr McPherson has been in the senior management team at the council for more than two years and acting chief executive when Mr Ruru has been away.

A Mangawhai resident, she is involved in community projects such as the Mangawhai Park development.

Dr McPherson’s appointment will be confirmed at the August Council meeting.
