Burgoyne bids farewell

Glenelg Shire chief executive Greg Burgoyne will officially say farewell after announcing his resignation last week. 

Mr Burgoyne will leave the organisation after more than a decade of service, with roles in corporate services before being appointed chief executive in 2014. 

A Portland local born and bred, Mr Burgoyne has been a recognisable and reliable source of leadership for the community during his tenure, bringing his wealth of financial and strategic knowledge from his previous roles with the Australian Taxation Office and Shell. 

Glenelg Shire Mayor Anita Rank thanked Mr Burgoyne for his dedication to the community, with his successful advocacy efforts resulting in a recent funding windfall for some of the Shire’s most landmark projects, including the transformation of the Portland Foreshore and Cape Bridgewater. 

“After 10 years of dedicated service with the Glenelg Shire Council, Greg Burgoyne is resigning from the position of chief executive officer. His extraordinary service has led the organisation through a period of rapid growth and change,” she said. 

“He is to be congratulated on his achievements and implementation of a strategic direction that will see the organisation prosper well into the future. 

“At Tuesday’s council meeting, Councillors regrettably accepted the CEO’s resignation and signed off on a recruitment process that will see a replacement early in the new year. 

“We wish Greg well and thank him for his leadership, integrity and guidance.” 

Mr Burgoyne will stay in his role until a replacement is secured.
