Nillumbik Shire Council Chief Executive Officer Mark Stoermer has today announced his resignation and his move to Queensland.

Mr Stoermer will leave Nillumbik in September to take on the CEO role with Douglas Shire Council in Far North Queensland.

Mr Stoermer thanked staff and Councillors for their commitment to the Shire and the support they had given him since he was appointed early last year.

“We are all truly lucky to work in this great Shire. It is a unique and special place with a wonderful community who is engaged in everything we do – that’s why we love working here,” Mr Stoermer said.

“I had not intended to move north until sometime into the future, but these roles are very few and I had to take the opportunity.

“It was always the place I had planned to end up, having holidayed there for over 20 years and having bought a home there about three years ago.”

Mayor Peter Clarke thanked Mr Stoermer for his service to the Shire.

“Mark has been outstanding in his role as CEO for the Shire of Nillumbik and we are appreciative of his clear focus, strong work ethic and organisational skills,” Cr Clarke said.

“His leadership and business acumen has helped us deliver some great achievements and will ensure our success into the future.

“Our community has benefited from his unique skill set and friendly customer focused mindset.”

Council will start the process to find a replacement immediately.
