Director of Finance and Corporate Services resigns

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.
