Chief executive re-appointed
I have much pleasure in confirming the
re-appointment of Rob Phillips as Environment Southland's chief executive for
the next five years.
The Local Government Act requires local
government chief executives to be on five-year fixed term contracts. There is
provision for the incumbent to opt for a two-year extension. However, Rob’s
commitment to Southland is such that it was his preference to apply for a
second five-year term.
The council subsequently advertised the
position and went through a process, which resulted in his re-appointment.
Environment Southland is fortunate to
retain a chief executive of Rob's calibre. I'm delighted that he has accepted
the role, as it provides continuity for progressing the challenges ahead of us.
Chairman – Environment Southland
