CEO to call it quits next year

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

CITY of Bel­mont chief ex­ec­u­tive Stu­art Cole has an­nounced he will re­tire in Au­gust next year.

Mr Cole has worked in lo­cal gov­ern­ment for 42 years, in­clud­ing 22 at the City of Bel­mont, nine as its chief ex­ec­u­tive.

Dur­ing his ten­ure at the City, Mr Cole has been a part of a num­ber of sig­nif­i­cant projects, such as the City of Op­por­tu­nity Mar­ket­ing Strat­egy.

“I have been proud and priv­i­leged to be a part of this or­gan­i­sa­tion and have en­joyed my time at the City of Bel­mont,” he said. “How­ever, I am look­ing for­ward to the next phase of my life and spend­ing more time with my fam­ily.”

The re­cruit­ment process for a new chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer will be a long and in­ten­sive ex­er­cise, so Mr Cole’s early an­nounce­ment pro­vides the City with a chance to en­sure that there is a smooth and seam­less tran­si­tion when he re­tires.

“It will be busi­ness as usual un­til the ap­point­ment of a new chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer,” Mr Cole said.
