Hannah, who has been Acting Director Works and Technical Services at Buloke since January of this year, will move into the renamed role that better reflects the area’s output, on a permanent basis immediately.

“I am really excited to announce Hannah as our Director Infrastructure and Delivery. She has had an amazing career at Buloke and her achievements in the directorate this year in project delivery and asset planning have been first class highlighted by the review of our Road Management Plan, the Strategic Asset Management Plan, the 2022/23 Capital Works Program and oversight of the Tourism Innovation Grant Guidelines.

This is on top of her undeniable Corporate Services record. I look forward to continuing to work alongside Hannah in her new role”, Council’s CEO Wayne O’Toole said.

We are so lucky to have an excellent group of local professionals in our team delivering everyday”, Hannah Yu said. A process to recruit a new Director Corporate Services will now be undertaken.
