CEO resigns, Eastern Courier article 13th July 2011

Unley's CEO retires after four-year stint
UNLEY Council is on the lookout for a new chief executive after Ray Pincombe announced his retirement earlier this month. Mr Pincombe, who has been at the council since June 2007, will finish up in November. Born in Broken Hill, NSW, Mr Pincombe, now 63, has had 45 years'
experience working in local governments. He has worked in a variety of roles, including management, finance and public administration for the cities of Broken Hill, Adelaide, Thebarton, Elizabeth, Playford, Prospect and now Unley. Before joining Unley, he was Prospect's chief executive for five years. Mr Pincombe was in the Solomon Islands as a local government representative, after being invited by the Department of Defence, when contacted by the Eastern Courier Messenger last week. In a brief comment, he said he was looking forward to having a break from full-time work and was in the process of considering his future options. Unley councillor Jennie Boisvert said Mr Pincombe would be missed."He has a very good relationship with his staff," Cr Boisvert said."Everyone has respect and time for him."

I am currently on the panel to assess the performance of the CEO and to set new directions for the next year. Council will be debating next Monday (18th July) who should be on the selection panel and the selection process that it wishes to pursue to ensure the management of the Council is in safe, effective and innovative hands from November 2011.
