Irwin Shire CEO to Resign

At a Special Meeting of Council held on Tuesday, 10 July the Shire of Irwin Council accepted the resignation of Chief Executive Officer Mr Darren Simmons for personal health reasons.

The resignation will come into effect from Friday, 13 July.

Shire President Cr Mike Smith said it was with regret that the Council accepted Mr Simmons’ resignation and thanked him for his contribution to the organisation and the community over the past eight years.

“During the past eight years Council and the community have been fortunate to have a leader with 30 years industry experience, high ethical standards and strong governance principles,” Cr Smith said.

“Darren’s belief in the Shire’s values of innovation, accountability, integrity and respect has had a positive, lasting impact on the Shire’s culture, and his leadership and professionalism will be greatly missed.”

Cr Smith said a recruitment process to find a new CEO would now commence, with Mr Shane Ivers appointed as Acting CEO during this period.
