Mayor Dave Cull announced today that Dunedin City Council Chief Executive Jim Harland has resigned his position.
“Mr Harland leaves the Dunedin City Council to take up a position as Southern Regional Director for the NZ Transport Agency, commencing in January 2011. This is a unique opportunity for Mr Harland and one that utilises his strengths in strategic planning, organisational leadership and relationship management”, said Mayor Cull.
NZ Transport Agency Chief Executive Geoff Dangerfield said that as Southern Regional Director Mr Harland would work between NZTA’s Christchurch and Dunedin offices so would not be lost to Dunedin. “This is a key position within the NZTA and Jim will play an important role in advising South Island councils regarding their regional land transport strategies.”
As part of his new role, Mr Harland will retain his position on the Stadium Project Delivery Team because of the synergy between the Stadium, the realignment of SH88 and his knowledge of the project. He will also be involved in national projects as part of the NZTA’s Senior Leadership Team.
