Published on Friday, 13 January 2023 at 10:05:18 AM

This week the Shire of Plantagenet Chief Executive Officer Cameron Woods resigned after two years in the role.

Mr Woods was appointed CEO in March 2021 following four years as Shire of Exmouth Chief Executive Officer.

Mr Woods resigned on 9 January to accept the position of Town of Bassendean CEO. His final day is 29 March.

Mr Woods said he had thoroughly enjoyed his return to the Great Southern region to take up the helm at the Shire, but it was time for a new challenge.

“I would like to thank the Council for the opportunity to serve as CEO for two years,” Mr Woods said.

“The decision to move on is largely driven by the desire to be closer to family in Perth.

“I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Shire team for their support and commitment to the organizational improvements that have been introduced during my term.

“I am proud of the achievements we have made together, particularly in the way we engage with our community and the improvements to the amenity of our towns and streetscapes.” 

“I look forward to continuing this direction over the next three months and setting up the organization for further success, post my departure.”

Shire President Chris Pavlovich expressed his gratitude to Mr Woods and said he would be missed.

“Cameron has steered us through two years of COVID-19 pandemic disruption, the development of major projects, and increased community engagement,” Cr Pavlovich said.

“He has done an outstanding job during a challenging time, for which we are truly grateful.”

“We wish him all the best for his future endeavours.”

The recruitment process to appoint a new Chief Executive Officer will commence as soon as possible.
