Former Mildura Rural City Council chief executive Mark Henderson was today announced as Moira Shire Council's new chief executive.

Moira Shire Mayor Peter Mansfield said Mr Henderson bought extensive knowledge of the Murray region.

“Mark’s experience running regional councils and his knowledge of agriculture and regional tourism will be invaluable to helping to grow the Shire’s economy,“ Cr Mansfield said.

“He has a reputation as a strong leader who develops top management teams and addresses tough issues.

“His mayor Glenn Milne described his term at Mildura as fantastic based on the region’s growth and the strength of the Council’s management team and finances.

"These qualities are important for Moira Shire and we look forward to welcoming Mark on board.”

Mr Henderson will commence work in early May, and replace acting chief executive Peter Bertolus.

Mr Bertolus took up the role after councillors in October last year passed a vote of no confidence and sacked former chief executive Gary Arnold.

Cr Mansfield confirmed Mr Henderson’s appointment was overwhelmingly endorsed by Council.

Mr Henderson was not available for comment.
