Ashburton District Council's recently-appointed Community Relations Manager, Vincie Billante, has this week resumed her new role which will see her become a key part of the organisation's management team.
With a strong background in policy development, strategy and community advisory services, Manager People and Capability Sarah Mosley says Ms Billante's background fits our organisation's needs.
Prior to joining Ashburton District Council Ms Billante worked as a Senior Advisor for New Zealand Red Cross.
"She has a wealth of experience in local government, health, education and NGO sectors will provide some real benefits to both the Council and our wider changing community.
"With a number of big projects and developments happening in the district in the near future - such as consultation on the district's Long Term Plan 2015-25 – it is great that she will be able to be involved at this important stage."
In her position managing the Community Relations team, Ms Billante is charged with leading the policy, communications and customer service activities for Council.
Ms Billante will be one of the new faces introduced to Council at the 9th April Council meeting.
