Council Appoints New CEO

I am very pleased to advise that the Council formally appointed Ms Diane Hood to the role of CEO to the Central Desert Regional Council. The Council appointed Ms Hood after an extensive nation-wide recruitment process.

The appointment of Ms Hood follows the decision by our current CEO Ms Cathryn Hutton to leave the organisation after seven years to take an extended holiday and spend more time with her family.
