Mayor Peter Mansfield told the Chronicle the council had engaged Jo Fisher Executive Search to manage the recruitment of the new Chief Executive Officer.
“The Melbourne based company specialises in senior executive search and recruitment,” Cr Mansfield said.
“Applications for the position closed at the end of January with Jo Fisher Executive currently at the applicant review stage.”
It is believed Jo Fisher Executive will short list approximately six applicants and then councillors will have the task of going through the resumes of each applicant prior to the interview stage.
Previous CEO Gary Arnold’s tenure ended in sensational circumstances after councillors upheld a vote of no confidence at the October ordinary meeting last year.
The events unfolded in the confidential section of the meeting held in Nathalia and the Yarrawonga Chronicle learned from council sources Mr Arnold departed directly after the vote was taken.
Mr Arnold’s sacking came on the back of the sudden departure of Director Shire Development and Liveability Paul Squires.
Council’s only response to the issue has been a one sentence statement confirming Mr Squires finished his employment with council on October 14, 2013.
There has been no clarification as to whether Mr Squires resigned or if his position was terminated.
With the departure of Gary Arnold and Paul Squires, Moira Shire Council has lost, in just over two years, 10 senior personnel.
This includes Executive Officer for Tourism Merran Socha, Chief Financial Officer Adrian Pawar, Executive Corporate Development Bill Hayward, Director Community Sustainability Kaye Thomson, Manager Economic Development Andrew Powrie, Director Corporate Governance Chris Cowley, Director Development Richard Whiting and Director Infrastructure Services Aaron Drenovski.
