CEO Scott Waters announces resignation
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.
