Wellington Regional Council to advertise for new Chief Executive

The role of Chief Executive for Greater Wellington Regional Council will go to the market following the decision of incumbent David Benham not to seek reappointment at the end of his contract.

Mr Benham’s contract expires on 5 September this year and he has indicated to the council that he will not seek to carry on in the role after this date.

Mr Benham was appointed Chief Executive in 2005, having joined GWRC in 1989 and having held the positions of Divisional Manager Finance and Administration, CFO and Divisional Manager Utilities Services.

Wellington Regional Council Chair, Fran Wilde, says the regional council respects Mr Benham’s decision and thanks him for his dedication over the past nine years as Chief Executive.

“Dave has seen the organisation through a period of significant achievement and can be proud of the legacy he leaves. The organisation has recently moved its main offices to new premises under difficult circumstances, but it is now well poised to face any future challenges.”

She says that with the Local Government Commission currently considering various options for governance in the Wellington region, the regional council will seek to appoint a new Chief Executive who can maintain the stability of the organisation, building on past successes, while possibly leading a significant change process.

“This appointment will be crucial as GWRC continues to deliver high quality services to residents and ratepayers.”

The position of Chief Executive is expected to be advertised within the next two months.
