Mayoral Comment 325x130 

Mrs Rebecca Ryan has been appointed as the new GM for Blayney Shire Council. Mrs Ryan is currently the Director of Corporate Services at Warrumbungle Shire Council, with headquarters in Coonabarabran.

Mrs Ryan commented that "to be offered the position of General Manager, Blayney Shire Council, by the Mayor and Councillors, is very special.  I have 13 years local government experience giving me a sound appreciation of the challenges associated with managing a rural Council and whilst I will be leaving my role of Director Corporate Services, Warrumbungle Shire Council with a touch of sadness that comes from working in a great team and friendly area, I am truly looking forward to being part of the fabric that makes Blayney Shire unique; meeting people and becoming involved in the community. This is what makes working in local government so rewarding and enjoyable".

Mrs Ryan replaces Glenn Wilcox, who has taken up the position of General Manager at Armidale Dumaresq Council. Mrs Ryan will commence her duties on Monday 3rd November 2014.
