Chief Executive Officer Appointment

Posted on: Thursday, 23 August 2018 at 3:03:39 PM




Following an exhaustive process in the appointment of a new CEO for the Shire of Yilgarn, Council at its Ordinary meeting held on Thursday, 16 August 2018 resolved to appoint Mr Peter Clarke to the position on a three (3) Contract.


The Shire President, Cr Onida Truran, issued the following statement:-


“I am pleased to advise that Council has now added some stability in its Executive Management team by appointing Peter Clarke as its new CEO.  This followed a period of approximately 12 months where Council had been appointing people in Acting CEO capacities, which was not an ideal scenario.


Peter is well known in the Yilgarn district having served as our CEO on two other separate occasions, a period totalling 12 years of service with the Shire of Yilgarn.  Peter was appointed as Acting CEO in April 2018 during which time Council undertook a second round of recruitment processes. Whilst Peter did not initially intend to apply for the CEO position, we were delighted that he did in the end.   We welcome Peter back into the fold.


I would like to especially thank all of our staff for the way in which they have coped during this period of instability.  Councillors, staff and indeed the community now look forward to a period of consolidation in the administrative area of Council’s operations.”
