Resignation of Shire CEO

Mr Nils Hay has tendered his resignation as the Chief Executive Officer of the Shire of Mingenew. Following almost four years as CEO, Mr Hay will finish in the role on Friday 17 June 2022.

In resigning, Mr Hay had the following to say: “I am incredibly grateful to have had the opportunity to serve as CEO of the Shire of Mingenew, proud of the team that I have built, and I feel personally invested in many of the projects that I have been working on over the last four years – and the community in general.”

“I am also incredibly thankful for the support that I have enjoyed from the Shire President and Councillors throughout my tenure. Not every CEO has such a positive working relationship with their Council, and I consider myself lucky in that respect.”

Shire President, Councillor Gary Cosgrove made the following comments in accepting Mr Hay’s resignation: “Council is very grateful for the contribution that Nils has made to the Shire of Mingenew, and the Mingenew community, during his time as our CEO. Nils has lead the organisation well through some challenging events, brought in significant grant funding, and implemented a range of positive changes to the management of the organisation during his time.”

“Nils has also demonstrated that this role is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is passionate about the growth and development of regional communities and, as we wish him the best in his future endeavours, we also look forward to offering someone new the chance to help take Mingenew even further.”

Council will shortly be commencing a recruitment process for Mr Hay’s successor.
