EMG Leadership without silos Heather Montgomerie has lead a number of change management projects in the public sector including the National Rail Safety Regulator office, worked on regional economic development boards, participated in state Government Regional Development Council. Her diverse background and sound skill sets complement her responsibilities of the following portfolios of Strategic & Economic development, Strategic Assets, Open Space and Facilities and Infrastructure. Vincent Mifsud has come to the City of Marion with extensive senior financial experience having previously worked in private enterprise in number of industries. His experience as an Auditor with Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, a Regional Finance Manager with Telstra and a Finance Manager in the Aviation Industry underpin and supports his responsibility under the portfolio of Finance, ICT, Contracts, Libraries & Cultural Development and Community Development. Kathy Jarrett leads a diverse portfolio of Governance, Strategy, Organisational Excellence, Organisational Development, Environmental Sustainability and Development Services. With a company secretary background, her knowledge and experience in State and Federal Government and the private sector gives her the skills required to manage these units. She has been a key driver in leading governance reforms and the development of our strategic management frameworks. Experience has taught us that community issues do not fit neatly into organisational structures. As such, our management structure does not function as independent silos. Mark Searle joined the City of Marion in 2000 after riding the rapids of the Kennett Local Government reforms in Victoria, working for the cities of Melbourne, Dandenong and Wyndham. Mark has a strong interest in people and our potential as individuals, groups and societies. Mark’s leadership has been instrumental in the sustained cultural change and Business Excellence success which is now part of the City of Marion Landscape.
Elephants & Keystones What happens if nobody is game to raise the things we all know need to be addressed? What happens when a keystone species goes missing? LEADERSHIP, CULTURE, STRATEGY, PEOPLE
The Keystone Looking after people and dealing with the tough issues? Adopting behaviour that unlocks the potential of others? Are we good enough to want to get better?
