The Illawarra Shoalhaven Joint Organisation (ISJO) announces the appointment of its new Chief Executive, Leanne Taylor. Ms Taylor has an extensive background in regional leadership, strategic planning, innovation, alliance building, executive management and social services.
The ISJO Board welcomes Ms Taylor, who commenced on 1 April, and looks forward to collaborating on current and future regional initiatives under the ISJO banner for our four member councils.
Ms Taylor will focus on leading new regional initiatives for the organisation while continuing the successful delivery of established programs including the Illawarra District Weeds Authority, Southern Regional Waste Program and Regional Procurement.
Ms Lesley Scarlett retired from the Joint Organisation in September 2018 after seeing it through many changes over her 27 year career. Special thanks to Jim Fraser who acted as the Interim Executive Officer during the recruitment process and has now returned to his Manager of Programs and Operations position.
