Successful Candidate Yet to be Named

Search is Over for Wagga's New General Manager.

Wagga City Council has chosen its new General Manager, but it could be weeks before the identity of the new GM is publicly released.

Mayor Greg Conkey has confirmed a preferred candidate was selected for the position at an Extraordinary meeting of Council on Tuesday night, but the recruitment process still hasn’t been finalised.

25 applications were received for the high-paying position, with a panel consisting of the Mayor, Deputy Mayor, Albury City General Manager Frank Zaknich and Wagga Councillors Vanessa Keenan and Kerry Pascoe conducting the first round of interviews.

The 4 shortlisted candidates were interviewed by all Councillors on Tuesday night, before the preferred candidate was selected.
