The City of Greater Bendigo is pleased to announce Stacy Williams will join the organisation as the new Director Healthy Communities and Environments.
Ms Williams is currently the Director Community Wellbeing at Gannawarra Shire Council.
She has been in Local Government for 16 years, having worked at Gannawarra Shire for the past five years in her Director role and prior to that in a range of roles at Campaspe Shire Council.
Her experience includes leading multidisciplinary teams in aged care, early years, recreation, community health, environmental health, media and communications, library services, youth development, community engagement, public health and emergency management.
Ms Williams also recently led the development of Gannawarra Shire’s new Council Plan and community vision, as well as several strategies.
City Chief Executive Officer Craig Niemann said he looked forward to welcoming Ms Williams to the City.
“Stacy has successfully led various teams in critical service delivery so has developed a strong understanding of the overall business of Local Government, including the importance of internal and external customer service excellence.
“In particular, she oversaw Gannawarra Shire’s decision to deliver the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and successfully secured funding for various infrastructure redevelopments focusing on improving education and play outcomes for children. While at Campaspe Shire she led the successful implementation of a business transformation program, including new computer software for the organisation.
“Stacy also brings with her established networks from across the region, having worked closely with local politicians, State Government departments and community groups, and will no doubt be a great addition to the City.”
Ms Williams will join the City on Monday July 18.
“I’m really excited by this opportunity to contribute to the Greater Bendigo community, continue implementing the new Council Plan and lead strategic planning to shape future service delivery,” she said.
“I look forward to getting to know the talented Healthy Communities and Environments directorate and working with the team to support residents to be healthy and well at all ages, while delivering critical services and looking after our natural environment.”
