Tasman District CEO appointed

Leonie Rae will begin in the role of Tasman District Council Chief Executive Officer (CEO) next week.

Ms Rae has been the Council’s Chief Operating Officer since August 2021 and is the first internal appointment to the most senior role since its establishment in 1989.

She has previous experience in the CEO role, having stepped up for a year from March 2022.

Mayor, Tim King said that “in making this appointment the Council was looking for a seasoned executive who has the experience and insight to identify what is working within the organisation and what can be improved.

“We were grateful to have received a good number of applications from very qualified people that met this expectation,” he said.

“With her experience at a senior executive level in Christchurch City Council before, during and after the devastating earthquakes and leading the recovery of that Council’s regulatory building accreditation, we see an executive that has and will bring new and different perspectives to challenges.”

Ms Rae will take up the role on 19 February.
