At a Special Meeting of Central Goldfields Shire Council on Tuesday 23 January, a resolution was passed to appoint Ms Lucy Roffey to the role of Central Goldfields Shire Chief Executive Officer.
Ms Roffey brings to the role a unique mix of financial, corporate and Local Government experience and is currently CEO of Buloke Shire.
Her experience includes being a Fellow of the Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand, Member of the Australian Institute of Company Directors, Non-Executive Director Coliban Water, Audit Committee Member Castlemaine Health, Executive Director Mount Alexander Shire Council and Public Sector Panel Member - Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand.
Prior to working in Local Government, Lucy was a senior executive at the Australian Centre of the Moving Image.
Central Goldfields Shire Chair of Administrators Noel Harvey said he and his fellow administrators are delighted with the appointment of Ms Roffey to the position of CEO.
“Ms Roffey’s appointment is a result of thorough and rigorous process to find the most appropriately qualified and experienced candidate to lead Central Goldfields Shire.
“With demonstrated success in bringing strategy, leadership and transformation to organisations we are confident that Ms Roffey has the skills to lead us through a period of significant transformation as we deliver on the Organisation Reform Program, re-engage with our community and provide stable and visionary leadership in dealing with the many challenges that we have.
“I’d also like to take the opportunity acknowledge our outgoing Interim CEO Vince Haining and thank him for his significant contribution to the organisation since being appointed on Monday, 31 July 2017.
“Vince brought with him a wealth of experience and knowledge about Local Government and has provided leadership, stability and guidance to the organisation during a difficult period of transition.”
As Ms Roffey is currently CEO of Buloke Shire we expect her to start when a transition period is finalised with Buloke.
