Bruce to Business and Matt Moves On

The familiar face of Matthew Fletcher has moved on from GrantReady, with his next move in making yet to be announced. He did say that his next career move would be in Geelong.

Speaking to Matthew about his choice to more on to a new chapter and a new challenge, he said he had loved his time at GrantReady, adding that he had 'been privileged to meet so many amazing people on this journey.

"My knowledge and experience has grown so much wider and deeper than I expected and opened me up to opportunities to provide support and insight into so many organisations across business, community and government.

After almost seven years it's time for me to move on ... It's also an opportunity for GrantReady begin the next phase with new enthusiasm and new ideas. I hope that the future success of GrantReady and GrantGuru will, in a very small way, be a part of my legacy."

Bruce to Business

City of Greater Geelong Mayor, Cr Bruce Harwood, will address the Geelong Business Club next Monday, 9 July, at the club dinner and networking event at GMHBA Stadium.

it has been a busy re-entry into council for Cr Harwood, but the former mayor appears to be taking the community's call for a united council working to create a clever and creative city in his stride.

The council has appointed Martin Cutter as the new CEO and passed through its first Budget period, with a funding focus on early learning and community infrastructure.

After years of internal challenges, this council faces significant external challenges in the form of unprecedented population growth, the fiscal constraints of the State Government rate cap and the urgent need for a rapid reset on waste management in the face of changing policies in China and India.

The council is also turning its attention to the City's Civic Accommodation Project that would see council operations brought under one roof in central Geelong and with the recent designation of Geelong as a UNESCO City of Design, that can't be just any ordinary building.
