Manningham Council Chief Executive Officer, Warwick Winn, yesterday announced his resignation.
Mr Winn will be joining Penrith City Council as General Manager.
“It is with a heavy heart that I have tendered my resignation. I want to thank the organisation and councillors for their fantastic support and energy during my time at Manningham. I am proud of the work I have helped progress and the organisation’s ongoing journey to become more contemporary and better equipped to meet the needs of the community.
“After much consideration, the position with Penrith City Council was too good an opportunity to forego. The Penrith region is on the cusp of major transformative change with the challenges and possibilities that come with the development of the new Western Sydney Airport.”
Manningham Mayor, Cr Andrew Conlon, said: “I have really enjoyed working with Warwick and thank him for his vision and transformative initiatives he has brought to Manningham. While he will be missed, I appreciate the reasons for Warwick choosing this once in a lifetime opportunity with Penrith. I wish him and his family every success and happiness with this next chapter in their lives.”
Mr Winn will continue as Manningham CEO until Thursday 24 August.
