Mayor Cr Ian Smith said Mr Eversteyn was a stand-out candidate and would bring with him extensive experience in business management.

“Mark is an accountant with an extensive history leading successful companies across the globe,” Cr Smith said.

“He is currently director of operations for Americold Logistics and has been responsible for managing logistics contracts with some of the nation’s biggest companies, including Coles, Woolworths and Saputo.”

Mr Eversteyn has previously been general manager of Linfox M Logistics Thailand, where he led a team of more than 600 people in a company with multi-billion-dollar revenues.

“We are very excited that Mark will be joining our team and are confident his extensive skill in business management and his strong leadership credentials will put him in a fantastic position to lead Moyne into its next chapter,” Cr Smith said.

Mr Eversteyn said he was excited to be given the opportunity to lead Moyne.

“I was attracted to the position because it offers the absolute privilege to serve the wonderful community of Moyne Shire,” he said.

“As regular visitors to the region over many years, my family is very excited for the move; it will be a return home for my wife and a fantastic opportunity for our children.

“I’m looking forward to getting to know the team and the community right across Moyne Shire.”

Mr Eversteyn will begin at Moyne on Monday, July 15.

Peter Brown will continue as acting CEO until the end of June.

Arrangements for an acting CEO for the period between Mr Brown finishing and Mr Eversteyn starting will be finalised in the coming weeks.
