Palmer­ston North City Coun­cil has ap­pointed two new se­nior ex­ec­u­tive man­agers to its lead­er­ship team fol­low­ing the re­or­gan­i­sa­tion of its se­nior ex­ec­u­tive struc­ture.

Chris Dyhrberg has been ap­pointed to the newly cre­ated po­si­tion of chief cus­tomer and op­er­at­ing of­fi­cer and has more than 25 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence in the telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions, health and elec­tric­ity sec­tors. He held an ex­ec­u­tive role in one of New Zea­land’s top 15 listed com­pa­nies and five years in gen­eral man­ager po­si­tions.

Ap­pointed as new chief in­fra­struc­ture of­fi­cer is Tom Wil­liams whose ex­ten­sive ex­pe­ri­ence in­cludes lead­ing in ex­cess of 100 staff at the New Zea­land De­fence Force and re­spon­si­bil­ity for manag­ing all con­struc­tion and main­te­nance ac­tiv­ity of the NZDF’s $4.3 bil­lion es­tate port­fo­lio across nine dif­fer­ent sites.

Dyhrberg has most re­cently been the ex­ec­u­tive pro­gramme direc­tor for the Ru­ral Con­nec­tiv­ity group lead­ing the set-up phase of the shared mo­bile net­work joint ven­ture be­tween Spark, Voda­fone and 2de­grees. He has also served as a direc­tor on Ka¯ piti and Horowhenua elec­tric­ity net­work com­pany Elec­tra.

“My pri­mary role will be to in­spire and sup­port my team to suc­cess­fully de­liver ser­vices to the pub­lic and busi­ness com­mu­nity,” Dyhrberg said, who added that part of the at­trac­tion of the role was the 10-year plan.

“I’m very ex­cited about what my team can de­liver for the city now and into the fu­ture,” he says.

Wil­liams has man­age­rial ex­pe­ri­ence with the NZDF, De­part­ment of Cor­rec­tions, Ki­wiRail and Air Ser­vices Aus­tralia. Most re­cently he served as gen­eral man­ager es­tate de­liv­ery for NZDF, lead­ing the de­liv­ery of the trans­for­ma­tional es­tate re­gen­er­a­tion pro­gramme and es­tab­lish­ing the strate­gic busi­ness part­ner for the de­fence es­tate and in­fra­struc­ture group.

“Palmer­ston North has a sig­nif­i­cant pro­gramme of new and re­me­dial works re­quired across its in­fra­struc­ture port­fo­lio, which is go­ing to make a huge dif­fer­ence to Palmer­sto­ni­ans’ lives and busi­ness prac­tices,” Wil­liams says.

“I feel a great deal of re­spon­si­bil­ity in lead­ing my team and help­ing them to be suc­cess­ful.

“I be­lieve my team is go­ing to help make Palmer­ston North one of the best places to live in New Zea­land.”
