Council's new CEO

Parramatta City Council has today announced the appointment of Mr Gregory Dyer as Chief Executive Officer.
Mr Dyer moves into the role in February 2014 and replaces Dr Robert Lang, who recently resigned after a number of highly productive and successful years at Council.
Announcing the appointment, Lord Mayor Cr John Chedid said: "Mr Dyer brings a wealth of talent and experience to the role, particularly in property and financial management, and we're delighted he's agreed to join us."
"He has a proven and outstanding track record of achievement, and experience that will serve Parramatta well as we continue to grow the city as Sydney's second premier CBD. We look forward to the benefit of his expertise."
Mr Dyer's appointment comes after an extensive and rigorous executive search, with a number of candidates of exceptional talent vying for the role.
"Having been born in Parramatta, it's gratifying to receive this opportunity to work in a community that I knew very well, and which was a key part of my early development," Mr Dyer said.
He most recently served as Finance Director with Top 50 ASX-listed property company Mirvac Group, a position he held from September 2012. Previously, he served as Chief Financial Officer with property/lifestyle investment company Mulpha Australia Ltd, and APN News and Media.
He has also held a number of director and non-executive director positions in Australia, the US and Asia with organisations including Insite Organisation Pty Ltd, FKP Property Group, Real Estate Capital Partners Managed Investments Ltd.

Mr Dyer holds degrees in both economics and law from the University of Sydney, and qualified as a chartered accountant while working for KPMG in their Parramatta office.
