Latrobe City CEO, Penny Holloway, has been appointed to the position of General Manager (Chief Executive Officer) of North Sydney Council. Ms Holloway will be taking up her new position on 14 May.
Ms Holloway said it was with real mixed feelings that she would be making the move.
“I am very sorry and sad to be leaving a great organisation with terrific people, as well as an area which, I believe, has a lot going for it, and more things to come,” Ms Holloway said.
“However the opportunity of working in an inner metropolitan area at the heart of Sydney, close to my extended family, is also very attractive,” Ms Holloway added.
“Latrobe City Mayor, Councillor Brendan Jenkins said Ms Holloway’s resignation from Latrobe had been accepted with reluctance.
“While we sincerely wish Ms Holloway the very best in her new appointment, my fellow Councillors and I are sad to be losing a very capable CEO. Ms Holloway has provided strong leadership and direction at a time when Latrobe has undergone exciting and dramatic changes in the aftermath of local government amalgamations,” Cr Jenkins said.
“Through her guidance, Latrobe has set high standards and principles in municipal management and delivered quality customer orientated services to the community. Latrobe City is held in great esteem in local government circles and in many cases has led the way by example and in delivering to the needs of the community,” Cr Jenkins added.
North Sydney Council Mayor, Genia McCafferey, said the decision to appoint Ms Holloway had been a unanimous one of the full Council.
“Councillors were impressed by her breadth of experience and her focus on meeting community needs and expectations. I am confident Ms Holloway possesses the management skills that are needed to maintain our position as one of Sydney’s leading Councils,” Ms McCaffrey said.
Ms Holloway’s career in local government began with her appointment as General Manager, City Services, with the City of Whitehorse in eastern suburban Melbourne. Ms Holloway was appointed as CEO of Latrobe in 1997.
