City welcomes new Director of Healthy Communities and Environments

The City of Greater Bendigo is pleased to announce that Stacy Williams will join the organization as the new Healthy Communities and Environments Director.

Ms. Williams is currently Director Community Wellbeing at Gannawarra Shire Council.

She has worked in local government for 16 years, having worked in her role as Director at Gannawarra Shire for the last five years and before that in a number of capacities with Campaspe Shire Council.

Her experience includes leading multidisciplinary teams in the areas of aged care, early years, recovery, community health, environmental health, media and communications, library services, youth development, community engagement, public health and emergency management.

Ms. Williams also recently led the development of Gannawarra Shire’s new council plan and community vision, as well as several strategies.

City chief executive officer Craig Niemann said he looks forward to welcoming Ms. Williams to the city.

“Stacy has successfully managed diverse teams in the delivery of critical services, developing a strong understanding of the overall business of local government, including the importance of excellent internal and external customer service.

“In particular, she oversaw Gannawarra Shire’s decision to provide the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) and successfully secured funding for various infrastructure redevelopments focused on improving educational and play outcomes for children. During her time at Campaspe Shire she led the successful implementation of a business transformation programme, including new computer software for the organisation.

“Stacy also brings her well-established networks from across the region, having worked closely with local politicians, state government departments and community groups, and will no doubt be a great asset to the city.”

Ms. Williams will enter the city on Monday 18th July.

“I am excited about this opportunity to contribute to the Greater Bendigo community, further implement the new council plan and lead strategic planning to shape future service delivery,” she said.

“I look forward to meeting the talented Healthy Communities and Environments Directorate and working with the team to support residents of all ages to be healthy and well while providing important services and caring for our natural environment .”
