In the years since, I’ve come to share the respect Lisa enjoys from her staff, local Councillors, her colleagues on the senior executive team, and those who she deals with professionally. Having had the opportunity to see Lisa champion and lead the implementation of key initiatives, I have some insight into the degree to which the wider MidCoast community has benefited through Lisa’s strategic approach and vision. Her planning strategies have not only driven greater efficiencies and results, but created enduring benefits through a balanced approach to development and policies that have firmly positioned the MidCoast for future success. While Lisa has a strong record of performance in Local Government, she is a senior executive with the proven ability to make a quality contribution in either the public or commercial sector.”
