New CEO appointed

Wednesday, July 11, 2018

Bayside City Council is very pleased to announce the appointment of a new Chief Executive Officer, Mr Mick Cummins. Mr Cummins was appointed CEO at a Special Council Meeting on Tuesday 10 July for a four year term.

Councillors unanimously resolved to appoint Mr Cummins after an extensive recruitment process facilitated by an external recruitment agency.

Mr Cummins has been Acting CEO at Bayside City Council since 6 April 2018 following the resignation of former CEO Adrian Robb.

Mayor Cr Laurence Evans said he was thrilled with the appointment of Mr Cummins.

“Mr Cummins is an outstanding choice to lead Bayside City Council at this time,” Cr Evans said.

“With his strong focus on the community, his passion, drive and superior leadership skills, Mr Cummins’ extensive experience in local government ensures that Bayside City Council is in safe and capable hands.”

Mr Cummins brings a wealth of local government experience to the role.

Since 2012 he has been the Director of Corporate Services at Bayside where he has played a key role in driving savings and efficiencies that have seen Council pay off debt while continuing record investments in capital infrastructure and keeping rates low.

Mr Cummin’s local government experience encompasses the areas of finance, governance, organisational development, customer service and community services. 

Prior to commencing at Bayside, Mr Cummins was General Manager Corporate at Frankston City Council and as Director of Corporate Services at the Shire of Yarra Ranges.

Mr Cummins said he was excited and humbled to have been appointed the CEO of Bayside City Council and looked forward to building on the strong foundation established by outgoing CEO, Adrian Robb.

“Over the past 10 years, outgoing CEO Adrian Robb has helped to position Bayside into one of the most financially stable and best performing councils in Metropolitan Melbourne,” Mr Cummins said.

“I look forward to working with the community, Councillors and staff to build on these successes and to continue delivering fantastic services and facilities for the great city of Bayside.”

“I feel very fortunate to be leading a council that serves the wonderful, connected and passionate community here in the City of Bayside.”

Mr Cummins holds a Bachelor of Business and Graduate Diploma in Management.
