Bass Coast,

Council Director Moving On

Bass Coast Shire Council congratulates Corporate Services Director, Steve Piasente, on being appointed to a position with Latrobe City Council.

Mr Piasente advised his colleagues on Wednesday he had accepted the role of General Manager Community Infrastructure and Recreation.

“I decided to take up this opportunity for my own personal and professional development,” Mr Piasente said.

“I have had a long commitment to Bass Coast and have thoroughly enjoyed working here and providing my small contribution to make Bass Coast a great place to live, work and visit.

“It has certainly been a privilege working with all the dedicated, knowledgeable and energetic staff we have at Bass Coast.

“I am excited about taking on a new challenge with a larger council and a more diverse portfolio; however I will sadly miss the friendships and professional relationships I have developed at work and within the community.”

Council CEO, Paul Buckley PSM, thanked and congratulated Mr Piasente, and recognised his contribution to the organisation and the Bass Coast community over many years.

“Since arriving at Bass Coast, I have found Steve to be a passionate and professional Director with a strong reputation for leadership and integrity,” Mr Buckley said.

“He will be sadly missed, but I’m sure everyone joins with me in wishing Steve all the best in his new role.

“I am confident he will make a positive and valuable contribution to the Latrobe community and organisation.”

Mr Piasente’s final date is yet to be decided.
