Mr Davis informed councillors of his decision earlier this week, which was “reluctantly accepted” by mayor Cr Ian Smith.

“While we are saddened by Brett’s departure, council understands and respects his decision and we wish him well as he takes on a role with the state government,” he said.

“Brett has made significant contributions during his time as both director and CEO over the past four years.

“He has been instrumental in driving positive change, implementing key initiatives and fostering collaboration among various government departments and councils to enhance the shire’s reputation.”

Mr Davis said the decision to leave Moyne wasn’t taken lightly.

“It’s a decision I have made for professional and personal reasons and while I’m sad to be leaving, I am looking forward to the next chapter and to seeing where Moyne goes from here,” he said.

“Moyne Shire remains in a strong position despite the ongoing challenges the local government sector faces as a whole but I’ve no doubt it will continue to meet those challenges head on while continuing to deliver crucial services to the community.”

Mr Davis thanked councillors Meade, Smith and Foster who had each been mayor during his time at Moyne.

He also thanked current and former councillors for their guidance and their dedication to the community.

Cr Smith said further announcements would be made in relation to the recruitment of a new CEO, with an interim appointment to be announced next week.
