The hunt is over for Broken Hill City Council's new General Manager after Mayor Wincen Cuy announced yesterday afternoon that Therese Manns had been appointed to the role.

Mrs Manns is a qualified Chartered Accountant and holds a Bachelor of Financial Administration and is currently the General Manager for the Boorowa Council in NSW, a position she has held for the last two and half years.

In 2005 the Local Government Managers' Association awarded Mrs Manns the prestigious 'Aspiring Young Manager of the Year award'.

Mrs Manns has held several senior positions in regional and rural councils and has also worked at private accounting firms.

Mrs Manns will become Broken Hill's first female General Manager.

Mrs Manns was quoted in the Broken Hill City Council's media release (see link here) as saying "I am very honoured to be selected as the new General Manager of the Broken Hill City Council.  With many changes currently taking place in local government state wide, I look forward to working with the Mayor, Councillors and the community to ensure Broken Hill remains vibrant and that Council has the capacity to ensure strength and sustainability into the future."

I wish Mrs Manns every success in her new role which she is expected to take up on 1 August.

Cheers, Jane D
