PCC Appoints Wendy Walker to Gm Strategy & Planning

Wendy Walker has been appointed new General Manager Strategy & Planning for Porirua City Council and will take up the role next month.

Council Chief Executive Gary Simpson says Ms Walker has many years’ experience working in local and central government.

“Wendy has extensive knowledge working in the public sector, including 18 years at Wellington City Council where her various roles included Director of Strategy Policy and Planning, Director Community Services and Director of Citizen Engagement.”

During this time Ms Walker developed and lead WCC’s services and organisational processes to improve the Council’s engagement with the public; she oversaw the management of community services such as libraries, recreational facilities, social housing and community development and that city’s Long Term and Annual Plan processes.

“Wendy’s strong people skills are matched by proven strategic, financial and operational capabilities. We welcome her to the Council and look forward to the positive contribution she will bring to Porirua.”

Wendy, of Ngati Mutunga ki Wharekauri descent, most recently completed contracts with Te Puni Kokiri, The Property Group and the Office of Treaty Settlements.

Wendy says she is excited about joining Porirua City Council and working with the people of Porirua City.

“I’m looking forward to taking up this new challenge and the new opportunities that this role offers. Porirua is a dynamic and growing city and I’m eager to get stuck in and to be part of Porirua’s development now and into the future.”

Ms Walker will take up her new role on Monday 14 April 2014.
