New chief executive aims high
By Chris Morris
The Dunedin City Council’s new chief executive is yet to get his feet under the desk, but is already aiming high. Welshman Paul Orders and his family flew into Dunedin – via Auckland – last Saturday, and have spent the last week on a rapid-fire familiarisation tour of the city before his first day in the role on Monday. Speaking to the Otago Daily Times yesterday, he said there was a lot to be done over the next few weeks as he embarked on a “steep learning curve”.
“Dunedin has great potential. It could be one of the great small cities. What it also needs to have is a very high-performing city council.”
