CEO resigns from Buller council

Buller District Council Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Sharon Mason has tendered her resignation to take up a Chief Executive position in the rural regional health sector.

Council will hold an extraordinary meeting on 5 October to formally accept Mrs Mason’s resignation.

“We have enjoyed a fantastic working relationship with Sharon and have felt very well supported by her and the way she has led her team,” said Mayor Jamie Cleine.

Mrs Mason said she had thoroughly enjoyed her tenure with the Council.

“It has been a privilege to work in partnership with the Mayor and elected members,” she said.

“The past 24 months have been a challenging period with two significant flood events and COVID lockdowns. I am proud of how council has responded to these events and worked in partnership with our community, WestReef, NGO’s and central government agencies to navigate this period.

“I acknowledge the wonderful council staff who work tirelessly to provide the best possible service to the Buller community. I commend them for delivering services through times of adversity and overt negativity from a small number of community members.

“I am leaving knowing that BDC has strong strategic, operational and leadership foundations in place which will enable the district to continue on a positive trajectory into the future,” said Mrs Mason.

Mayor Cleine said any decision regarding the appointment of an Acting CEO would be a matter for the incoming Council.
