ChCh City Chief Executive Remuneration Reviewed


Christchurch City Council chief executive remuneration reviewed

Christchurch City Council has increased the remuneration package of its chief executive, Dr Lesley McTurk, by 9.8 per cent to $335,355, says Mayor Garry Moore.

The Council considered the matter at its 16 December meeting and took advice which included a performance review process, including input from key external stakeholders and information about New Zealand chief executive officer remuneration packages in local government and other public sector organisations.

�gThe increase is the first since Dr McTurk joined the City Council in May 2003,�h Mr Moore says. �gIn effect, it is made up of 5% to bring the package back into line with the market and an annual adjustment of 4.8% which reflects her extremely strong performance.

�gDr McTurk has successfully addressed a number of key issues and priorities identified by the Council when she was appointed.�h

The new remuneration package applies from the beginning of the Council�fs current financial year, 1 July 2004, and as in the 2003/04 year, includes provision for 10% performance pay.

�gThe Council has agreed with Dr McTurk a number of key strategic issues for the current year which will form the basis for performance payment at year-end,�h Mr Moore says.

�œ The Christchurch City Council�fs 2004 Annual Report (note 18) includes details of the chief executive�fs remuneration package for 2003/04 and a year-earlier comparison. The note is at p50 in the printed version and on p52 of the on-line version, on the web as a PDF at http://www.ccc.govt.nz/annualreport/2004
