Wellington City Council (WCC) has announced the appointment of Siobhan Procter (pictured) as Chief Infrastructure Officer, overseeing the Council’s project management office, transport, infrastructure, asset management, resilience and property services.
Ms Procter is well known to Council, having joined WCC in 2018 as the Transport and Infrastructure Manager, responsible for the operations and maintenance of around $1.4 billion of transport assets as well as the capital delivery of new assets on the WCC roading network.
More recently, Ms Procter has undertaken secondment roles as Council Asset Management Transformation Manager and Three-Year Programme Director at Let’s Get Wellington Moving, responsible for a number of projects that will start construction over the next three years.
Council’s Chief Executive, Barbara McKerrow said the appointment of Ms Procter was key to the delivery of the 2021-2031 Long-Term Plan.
“Our Council has signed off on the most ambitious 10-year plan in our history, including a record capital expenditure programme,” she said.
“Siobhan and her team will be responsible for the majority of this investment and I’m delighted with her appointment. She is recognised within Council as a leader who can drive exceptional results and will be a great asset to our Executive Leadership Team.”
Ms Procter said she is looking forward to taking up her new role on 11 October.
“I’ve been fortunate to work alongside some great people in my time at Wellington City Council, and it’s a privilege to be able to lead them through this next crucial phase in the city’s development.”
“We have a unique opportunity to ensure that Wellington’s infrastructure can support the growth of the city and is fit for the future, and that’s an exciting challenge for myself and the team,” she said.
