New Parramatta Council CEO

Parramatta City Council’s new chief executive officer, Greg Dyer, has taken up the top job following the resignation of Dr Robert Lang.

"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," he said.
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 its Parramatta office.
Mr Dyer most recently served as finance director with the Mirvac Group, a Top 50 ASX-listed property company, 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 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," said Lord Mayor, John Chedid.
"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 came after an extensive and rigorous executive search, with a number of candidates of exceptional talent vying for the role, Cr Chedid said.
