Great leaders are empathetic and nurture relationships

HILLS Mayor, Yvonne Keane, has announced the appointment of Acting General Manager, Michael Edgar, to the position of General Manager of The Hills Shire Council.
Formerly Council’s Group Manager for Strategic Planning, Mr Edgar brings over 20 years’ experience in local government, with the last 12 years at The Hills. He took up the role of General Manager on July 14.
 
Mayor Keane said Mr Edgar was a stellar applicant with significant capabilities in strategic leadership including planning for future growth, the delivery of capital works, asset management and communications.
