New Yarra Ranges CEO

New Yarra Ranges CEO Tammi Rose.

Yarra Ranges Council will welcome a new CEO to its helm next month.

Councillors voted unanimously to appoint Tammi Rose to the position at their Tuesday 18 December meeting.

She’ll fill the role for four years from Monday 4 February.

Mayor Tony Stevenson said Ms Rose brought a wealth of experience in a range of senior roles, in both inner metropolitan and rural councils.

She is Hobsons Bay Council’s corporate services director, and also took on an acting CEO role there last year.

“With more than 18 years of local government experience in leading teams and driving innovation, Tammi is well qualified to ensure our organisation continues to service our diverse communities, sustain our natural environment and support growth in local jobs,” Cr Stevenson said.

“With a Masters in organisational development and professional qualifications as an accountant

(CPA), Tammi is well placed to continue and build on the current direction of our organisation.

“Council is excited by the energy, ideas and experience Tammi brings to Yarra Ranges.”

Ms Rose said she was excited about the challenge of leading the organisation as it continued its drive to be more efficient and innovative in delivering services.

“Yarra Ranges has an exciting future ahead, and it will be a privilege to work with the community, councillors and the organisation to move the municipality to another level of liveability, ensuring it is agile and future-proofed to support the communities of tomorrow as well as today.”

Ms Rose replaces Glen Patterson, who announced his departure late last year to take on the City of Casey CEO position.
