Your Council

Grant Elliott - Chief Financial Officer, City Corporate

The position I hold is that of chief financial officer which I have held since Feb 2008.


The position sees me lead a team which covers finance, information management, human resources, legal and Council secretariat services.

I started working in Local Government on 1 November 1989 which was the first day of the Local Government environment as we know it today.

My management style is to empower the staff to take responsibility for their job and to encourage them to challenge the way we do things and why we do them, so that continual improvements are made for the benefit of the Council and the ratepayer.
