- Members of Victorian State Parliament
The position of a Shire Council Chief Executive Officer is demanding and influential. After six years with the same organisation, CEOs are generally either burnt-out and needing new challenges, or have failed to implement their reforms.
Change at the top is beneficial and necessary in order to stimulate ideas, provide energy and diversity and limit the potential for corruption and cronyism.
Currently in Victoria there is no legislated limit on the duration of tenure of a Council CEO.
