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.

Frank Zaknich Chief Executive Officer

Our CEO is responsible for organisation and community strategy, city and regional advocacy, leadership, culture and performance.

He also ensures the efficient and effective operations of the Executive Leadership Team, which comprises our two Deputy CEO’s and is the interface between the organisation and the elected Council.

Tracey Squire Deputy CEO Business, Growth & Community

Our Business, Growth & Community Directorate focuses on providing more opportunities for our people, our place and progressing the city.

The groups within this directorate will empower our people, city and region to strive for more and to champion the significance of Albury as a national destination for life, work, culture, sport, entertainment, business and investment.

We build relationships and promote engaging and actionable dialogue with our community and our partners. We ensure good governance and we facilitate a highly engaged, satisfied and well-informed workforce.

Bridgett Leopold Deputy CEO Infrastructure, Planning & Environment

Our Infrastructure, Planning & Environment Directorate focuses on maintaining and improving our special and unique city and its surrounds.

The groups within this directorate take care of our place as well as ensure that we grow and develop the city in a planned, balanced and sustainable way.

We invest in and build infrastructure to meet everyone’s needs, and we provide and maintain quality facilities and services that rival, and even surpass those in larger cities. We are also responsible for preserving our stunning natural environment across our many and varied landscapes.

Service Leadership Team

Our Service Model has been designed to ensure we are a contemporary organisation that is future focused 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.
