Hume council will soon be under new leadership, with Sheena Frost today announced as the council’s next chief executive.

Mayor Joseph Haweil said that Ms Frost was a highly regarded leader in local government.

“I congratulate Ms Frost on her appointment to this important role in the Victorian local government sector and in our community,” Cr Haweil said.

“Her experience and track record speaks for itself with Ms Frost being recognised in 2019 as one of the Institute of Public Administration Australia’s Top 50 Public Sector Women.”

Ms Frost first started her working life as a communications specialist in the private and university sectors before joining local government in 2005.

For the past five years, Ms Frost has worked within the executive team at the City of Casey as corporate services director.

Ms Frost said she was excited to work toward Hume council’s future vision for the municipality.

“I’m passionate about the local government sector and the ability it has to directly and positively impact the lives of the community and look forward to leading Hume to deliver value to all those who live, work and visit,” she said.

Ms Frost will take over from interim chief executive Roslyn Wai on July 26.
