Mosman Park Leads Through Diversity

The new management team for the Town of Mosman Park has now been confirmed, and, for the first time ever, there are now more women than men in leadership roles.  

One of the first and most important orders of business for CEO Mark Goodlet, following his appointment in June 2016, was to recruit two new Executive Managers, and in so doing he chose Ms Gabriela Poezyn and Ms Bronwyn Rose to head up the Planning and Regulatory Services team and the Corporate Services team, respectively.

Gabriela Poezyn brings to the Town of Mosman Park more than 20 years of WA-based local government experience in both statutory and strategic planning, including the past eight years at management level.  Gabriela has a degree in Town and Regional Planning from the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa, and a law degree from Murdoch University.  Gabriela says the focus in her busy and demanding portfolio is to achieve the best possible planning outcomes for all parties through negotiation and mediation.

Bronwyn Rose is a Chartered Accountant and Certified Internal Auditor with 25 years of experience providing assurance and consulting services to state and local government.  Bronwyn says she is excited to take up the position of Executive Manager Corporate Services first and foremost because she is a local resident. “Being an executive team member in your own Town gives you the opportunity to effect change and improve services to your own community. I have already seen how my knowledge of the Town from when I started school at St Hilda’s to now living here with my family, has helped the Council.”  Bronwyn continues her roles as a member of WorkCover’s Audit Committee and Chairperson of a local charity, Tiny Sparks WA.  She has recently begun implementing a restructure of the Corporate Services team, sharpening the focus on the important functions of customer service and information management.  

Mr Goodlet said he was delighted to have the talent and experience of his new Executive Managers as well as Matthew Macpherson, the Town’s Executive Manager Technical Services, who has been with the Town for 2 years now.    

The Town’s overall workforce is diverse. More than 52% of staff are women, with 60% at senior levels. Many staff members were born overseas, and at least one staff member – one of the Depot crew – is aged in his 70s and is setting an example for others. By employing persons with some recognised disability, the Town also has a strong record as an equal opportunity employer, and there are three staff members who have served the Town for more than 20 years. 

Mr Goodlet said he was pleased that the staffing profile of the organisation reflected the diversity of the community as a whole and that this diversity assists the Town in making decisions that reflect local values, experiences and expectations.
