John Law, the Mayor of Rodney District, has announced the appointment of Vijaya Vaidyanath as Chief Executive Officer of Rodney District Council. “I congratulate Vijaya on her success.

The shortlist was made up of people of very high calibre competing for this sought-after role. Rodney communities demand the very best of their Council and the quality of the people who came forward ensured we’ve been able to deliver.”

“After the interview process each Councillor was asked their personal choice. Instantly, there was overwhelming support for Vijaya’s appointment,” Mr Law said.

Ms Vaidyanath has been with the Council for two years as Group Manager – Finance, Economy and Democracy Services. She is an MBA post graduate from the Joseph M.
