New recruit to Singleton Council’s Executive Leadership Team has eye on the future

Singleton Council has announced that Dwight Graham will join its Executive Leadership Team as Director Business and Community/Corporate and Commercial, continuing the organisation’s commitment to generating new revenue streams to boost levels of service to the community.

Coming from Lake Macquarie City Council where he is currently the Chief Financial Officer, Mr Graham will commence in the new role on 28 February 2022, overseeing Council’s finance, procurement, corporate services, business development and grants management, information technology, and land and asset management systems functions.

His appointment brings a wealth of senior leadership from across Australia and New Zealand in the local government sector, as well as water and power utilities.

Singleton Council General Manager, Jason Linnane, said the organisation’s culture of continuous improvement and a growing reputation for innovation and results was attracting a pool of skilled and talented professionals at a critical time for the community.

“Dwight has a very strong motivation to help our organisation and our community to deal with the challenge of moving through the socio-economic evolution we are expecting, and the opportunity to work on legacy-creating projects for the people who will live in Singleton and work at Singleton Council in the future,” he said.

“He will play a lead role in our commitment to strategic financial management through the management of grants funds and development of non-rates income streams to help increase levels of service and financial sustainability.”

Mr Graham said he was attracted to Singleton Council’s strong connection with the community and impressed by successful initiatives to improve the lives of all in Singleton, not just now but for generations to come.

“I’m looking forward to understanding what is important to the community, and to working with like-minded people at Singleton Council to help maximise the impact of Council’s resources to be part of the bright future for Singleton,” he said.
