Auckland City Reappoints CEO, Bryan Taylor


14 March 2001


Auckland City has reappointed its chief executive, 59 year old Bryan Taylor who has headed the country’s largest city council for the past five years, since June 1996.

With his contract period due to end in July, the council chose to advertise the position internationally.

Today’s announcement follows intensive interviews earlier this month with the shortlisted applicants by a sub-committee of Auckland City councillors with the assistance of a recruitment consultant.

Contract negotiations have now been concluded and the agreement signed this afternoon.

Advertisements for the position attracted about 15 replies which resulted in the shortlist of four candidates.

Before taking up the chief executive post in June 1996, Bryan Taylor had seven years in director positions with Auckland City.

An Aucklander, Bryan Taylor gained a Bachelor of Science degree at Auckland University, studied at Melbourne College of Theology and St Johns College.
More recently, he completed a certificate in the Harvard programme in state and local government at Harvard University, Massachusetts.

Mr Taylor is a Justice of the Peace and an Ordained Priest of the Anglican Church.
