Roslyn Wai has been appointed to the role of interim Chief Executive Officer at Hume City Council.
Her appointment follows the resignation of long-serving CEO Domenic Isola, who departs the Council today to explore new opportunities after 13 years in the position.
Roslyn joined Council in 2019 as Director, Communications Engagement and Advocacy – bringing 30 years’ experience working across the media, tertiary education and water sectors in public relations, community engagement, customer service, business management, strategy and governance.
Hume Mayor, Councillor Joseph Haweil, said Roslyn is an experienced leader who shares Council’s passion for delivering positive outcomes for the Hume community.
“Roslyn is a highly regarded senior executive, with strong experience in delivering organisational strategy, stakeholder engagement and people management,” Cr Haweil said.
“The Council has great confidence in Roslyn to lead the organisation through this interim period, and with the support of the Executive Management Team, will continue to deliver stable and consistent management of Hume City Council until a permanent appointment is made.
“As our communities recover and reconnect from the impacts of COVID-19, Council will continue to deliver the critical services, programs and projects our growing community needs and seize opportunities to accelerate economic recovery of businesses, employment and local investment.”
Prior to joining Council, Roslyn was Executive General Manager Strategy and Governance (Corporate Secretary) with Coliban Water.
