Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

AS OF yes­ter­day, Scott Wa­ters is no longer the chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer of Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil.

Af­ter fours years in the role, Mr Wa­ters said he was grate­ful for his time as CEO and the chal­lenges it put be­fore him.

“It has been an ab­so­lute hon­our and priv­i­lege to have served the Whit­sun­day Re­gional Coun­cil, first as gen­eral man­ager of Whit­sun­day Coast Air­port and then as coun­cil’s CEO and more re­cently head­ing up our newly formed Air­port and In­fras­truc­ture Cor­po­ra­tion,” he said.

Mr Wa­ters said he had been “blown away” by the pro­fes­sion­al­ism of coun­cil, but was ea­ger to tak­ing some time with loved ones.

“I’m look­ing for­ward to spend­ing more time with my fam­ily and pur­su­ing other ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties,” he said.

Mayor An­drew Will­cox praised Mr Wa­ters for his ef­forts, wish­ing him well in the fu­ture.

“Scott has made a sound con­tri­bu­tion to the Whit­sun­day com­mu­nity as coun­cil’s CEO over the past few years, and I ac­knowl­edge his ef­forts, par­tic­u­larly his com­mit­ment to driv­ing the con­tin­ued growth of the Whit­sun­day Coast Air­port,” he said.

“On be­half of coun­cil’s elected mem­bers and staff, I wish Scott and Kim and their young fam­ily the very best in the fu­ture.”

Act­ing CEO Barry Omund­son will con­tinue in his role un­til a per­ma­nent CEO is ap­pointed.

MOV­ING ON: Coun­cil CEO Scott Wa­ters has re­signed.
