Colac Otway Shire Council has appointed an acting Chief Executive Officer to lead the organisation while recruitment for a permanent CEO takes place.
Mayor Chris Potter said Council was pleased to appoint Robert Dobrzynski to the acting role, who most recently was the CEO of Launceston City Council.
Cr Potter said Mr Dobrzynski had ties to southwest Victoria and extensive experience as a leader in the local government sector.
Mr Dobrzynski has previously served as CEO of the Moorabool Shire Council, Delatite Shire Council and West Wimmera Shire Council.
“The recruitment of a new permanent CEO is one of the most important tasks our Council will undertake during our term,” Cr Potter said.
“We’re going to take our time to ensure the process is thorough and we get the right person to lead the organisation into the future.
“Robert has more than three decades of experience in local government and his interim appointment will ensure that we are able to maintain all of our essential services to the community while we go through the process of CEO recruitment.”
Mr Dobrzynski’s start date with Council is September 4.
