Hume City Council’s long-standing CEO, Domenic Isola announced his resignation today.
Mayor Joseph Haweil said Mr Isola has had an enduring energy, passion and commitment to the organisation and the Hume community which will be greatly missed.
“Domenic is one of the most highly regarded CEO’s in Local Government and the achievements of the organisation over the past 13 years are a testament to his leadership – not only for our community but also for the entire sector,” Cr Haweil said.
“Over the course of his employment with Hume City Council, Domenic has been an exemplary servant of the organisation and Hume community. The strength of Hume City Council’s current position can in large part be attributed to Domenic’s diligence, hard work and vision”.
“He departs Hume City Council leaving an unparalleled legacy of achievement and delivery for the organisation and a strong and respected reputation in the local government sector.”
“Domenic leaves Hume City with the profound appreciation of the Mayor, Councillors and staff and all those with whom he has had the pleasure of working over many years”.
Mr Isola said in a statement to all staff that it was time to look to the next chapter of his life exploring some new work opportunities after a break to spend more time with family and friends.
Mayor Haweil said Council was yet to discuss leadership arrangements whilst the organisation commences the search for its next Chief Executive Officer.
We look forward to celebrating Domenic’s achievements prior to his departure and they are many. To name just a few that will have a long legacy in our community – the award winning revitalisation of Town Hall Broadmeadows, the construction of global learning centres in Broadmeadows, Craigieburn and Sunbury, the Splash Aqua Park and Leisure Centre, Craigieburn ANZAC Park, the development of the Civic area in Broadmeadows.
