Executive Leadership Team

Our Executive Leadership Team comprises the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and two Deputy CEOs.

We are a community-focused organisation, putting the people, place and progress of Albury at the front and centre of how we are organised, manage ourselves, prioritise our activities and programs, execute our responsibilities and work together as a team.

In short, we are ensuring AlburyCity is the best Council it can be for our community - for what we all need today and for what we have envisioned for tomorrow to ensure we deliver on the commitments we have made to our community through the collaborative development of the Towards Albury 2050 Community Strategic Plan.

Service Leadership Team

Our Service Model has been designed to ensure we are a contemporary organisation that is future focussed and well positioned to deliver on our shared Council and community vision.

Rather than a hierarchal approach, the model is made up of 10 service clusters. Each cluster is led by a Service Leader reporting to a Deputy CEO.
