Victoria MacKirdy appointed City of Victor Harbor CEO

Victoria MacKirdyThe City of Victor Harbor is thrilled to announce the appointment of Victoria MacKirdy as its new Chief Executive Officer.

Mrs MacKirdy has been a key member of Alexandrina Council’s senior management team since May 2013, and undertook the Chief Executive Officer role for a nine month period.

Mrs MacKirdy was selected through a competitive selection process from a strong field of candidates from right across the country. Her extensive local government experience, collaborative leadership style and impeccable communication skills impressed Elected Members. However it was her fierce passion for Victor Harbor and the Fleurieu Peninsula that led to her being named the successful candidate.

Her experience includes being a board director at a State and National level for Local Government Professionals Australia, Local Government Professionals South Australia, Country Arts South Australia and Regional Development Australia – Adelaide Hills, Fleurieu Peninsula and Kangaroo Island.

City of Victor Harbor Mayor Graham Philp said Mrs MacKirdy is an outstanding choice to lead the council.

“Victoria MacKirdy is a highly respected local government leader that has a lot to offer the City of Victor Harbor,” Mayor Philp said.

“She has an unrivalled understanding of the local government sector, and I am confident that her leadership will strengthen and grow our council.”

Mrs MacKirdy said she was honoured and excited to be appointed to the Chief Executive Officer role.

“Being a property owner and primary producer in the area for 20 years, I have a strong connection to Victor Harbor and I am passionately committed to working together with the council and the community,” Mrs MacKirdy said.

“I come to the City of Victor Harbor knowing Graeme Maxwell has created a strong foundation on which I can build with the support of elected members and staff.”

“There is a lot of opportunity ahead for Victor Harbor, and I am very much looking forward to starting with the council in January.”

Mrs MacKirdy will commence at the City of Victor Harbor on 15 January 2018.
