The Invercargill City Council’s Director of Finance and Corporate Services Dean Johnston has resigned, having decided after 15 years in Local Government that it is time for a change, Chief Executive Clare Hadley announced today.
“Dean has been responsible for driving a number of major projects at Council and in the City. Over the years he has enjoyed a strong relationship with the Mayor, elected members and Council officers and is leaving the city in a good financial position.
“He has also played a key role in the success of lnvercargill City Holdings Limited and in the development of lnvercargill City Forests Limited. He feels that now is a good time for new beginnings elsewhere.”
Mrs Hadley said that Council wished Dean every success with his future career.
