Byron Shire Council GM Ken Gainger Has Resigned
BYRON SHIRE Council General Manager Ken Gainger has resigned, citing health reasons for his early departure.
Ken was appointed as Shire General Manager in December 2012 and commenced duties in late January 2013.
He formally resigned yesterday morning, presenting his formal letter of resignation to Mayor Simon Richardson.
Announcing Ken’s appointment in 2012, Byron Shire Mayor Simon Richardson welcomed him as the Shire’s new General Manager and said he looked forward to working with him.
Simon said Mr Gainger’s extensive background in local government, strategic management and community engagement were key skills that would help guide the Byron Shire over the coming years.
“Mr Gainger has been a GM for around 20 years, so a lot of experience, which is pleasing, dealing with collaborative initiatives with other councils.”
