Hutt City Council Reappoints Jo Miller As Chief Executive

Hutt City Council is pleased to announce that following a robust externally-led process Jo Miller has been reappointed as Chief Executive.

Council’s process attracted a good number of quality candidates, with Jo Miller being the stand-out candidate from that field.

"With significant levels of investment in water and transport infrastructure, transformational projects like Te Wai Takamori o Te Awa Kairangi (RiverLink), and record co-investment being planned over the next five years - council wanted a Chief Executive who will drive delivery and help make the most of the opportunities ahead for our city," says Mayor Campbell Barry.

"Jo has a proven track record over the past five years of delivery on council’s priorities - including the implementation of our rubbish and recycling system, building a new Naenae Pool, construction of Tupua Horo Nuku, and overseeing a significant uplift in pipe renewals going from 1km of new pipe in 2019/20 to 14.5km in 2022/23."

"Jo has driven our priorities while also leading the council response through a pandemic and climate-related events like the slip, and subsequent work, on Eastern Hutt Road and 200 other slips in 2021."

"Jo’s skill set and experience leading innovative housing solutions in the UK and here, together with her involvement in city deals, will be invaluable to our council and region given central government’s direction on these matters."

"As Mayor, I have personally been able to see how hard Jo works day in, day out, for the betterment of Te Awa Kairangi ki Tai Lower Hutt. Her contribution has been outstanding and elected members are excited to be able to continue our work together."
