Wimmera Catchment Management Authority has reappointed David Brennan as chief executive officer. Board chair Peter Hilbig has announced that Mr Brennan, who has been the chief executive for the past 10 years, will continue in the role.

The board advertised his position in March via Davidson, a recruitment agency for boards and chief executives, as part of government policy.

“The selection process explored a range of applicants, and confirmed Mr Brennan as the best candidate to lead the organisation forward,” Mr Hilbig said. “The board has always been absolutely confident with his leadership locally, which he delivers with passion and skill.”

Wimmera CMA is one of 10 CMAs in Victoria established under the Catchment and Land Protection Act. CMAs are governed by a board whose members are appointed by the State Government’s Minister for Water in consultation with the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change. The contract for the CEO position is limited to a maximum of five years with the option to extend for a further five years. All contracts are required to be opened to a competitive process after 10 years.

Mr Brennan said he looked forward to continuing his work with the board, CMA staff, key stakeholders, partners and the community.
