FORMER Vincent council CEO John Giorgi has been appointed the CEO for the Town of Cambridge.
He’s been working as a senior employee at the town since 2015, and has been acting CEO since June last year, when the town suspended then-CEO Jason Buckley.
Mr Buckley, whose package was $313,000 a year, was sacked in November.
He alleged he was mistreated and bullied, and threatened legal action according to the town’s media release.
Councillors voted 6-3 to appoint Mr Giorgi, an old school public servant, as CEO.
Late last year Ms Shannon publicly thanked Mr Giorgi for the extra work done by his temporary administration to “right the ship” after a difficult year.
Mr Giorgi was CEO at Vincent from the town’s inception in 1994, until 2014.
