ORC Director Accepts Job in Waikato

Media Release - 20 December 2018

An Otago Regional Council (ORC) Director has accepted the position of Chief Executive at Otorohanga District Council.

Tanya Winter, Director Policy, Planning and Resource Management, will take up her new role in mid-February 2019.

“While I have enjoyed being part of the team at ORC, this is an opportunity I couldn’t turn down,” she said. “I was in a chief executive position at Westland District Council prior to coming to ORC, and I’m looking forward to doing this role again at another council.”

ORC Chief Executive, Sarah Gardner, said the Otorohanga District Council is lucky to have someone with Ms Winter’s expertise joining their organisation.

“Tanya has achieved a lot during her time at ORC,” she said. “In particular, she has done an excellent job leading the minimum flows project and building strong relationships with iwi and the community.”

Mrs Gardner said, “we knew Tanya would be snapped up, with her talent and experience, and have been lucky to have her with us for the past 18 months.”

Ms Winter will continue in her director role at ORC until 8th February 2019.
