Following received from Nick Berman:
As you will be aware, Council’s General Manager Robert Ball will retire on 17 October 2011 after more than 19 years service with Council.
The Councillors and I are pleased to announce that Council’s Executive Manager Planning, Mr Scott Phillips, has been appointed to the position of General Manager and will commence immediately from Robert's retirement.
Scott has been with Council since August 2008 and comes with a wealth of experience, having previously worked at the NSW Department of Planning and Campbelltown, Fairfield and Wyong Councils.
Having only joined Council relatively recently and worked in many different organisations, Scott comes with fresh ideas and lots of experience.
Congratulations to Scott. I know the Councillors, staff and I are looking forward to working with you.
Best wishes to Robert for a relaxing and happy retirement.
Hornsby Shire Council
