Andrew Moore has been appointed Penrith City Council’s new General Manager.

It follows the departure of Warwick Winn from the role last year.

Raised in Penrith, Moore brings a wealth of experience to the position, having climbed the ranks at Council over the past 21 years.

His extensive knowledge of the organisation and track record in delivering results across a number of portfolios including Finance, Property Development and Management, ICT and Sustainability and Resilience made him the ideal candidate to lead Penrith City Council through its next growth phase, according to Mayor Tricia Hitchen.

“We’re thrilled to be appointing Andrew Moore as our new General Manager. Andrew’s experience, commercial and financial acumen, leadership skills, and passion for Penrith’s community set him apart,” she said.

“We have fantastic, talented people working at Penrith Council, so I’m not surprised that the best candidate has come from within the organisation.

“We’re confident that Andrew will provide strong leadership to our staff and will continue to deliver strong financial stewardship and positive outcomes for our community.”

Moore is looking forward to starting in the new role from April 24.

“I’m honoured to have been selected as the next General Manager of Penrith City Council,” he said.

“I am committed to continuing the great work already unfolding across the City and working collaboratively with our stakeholders and the community to ensure that Penrith continues to be a great place to live, work and visit.

“I’m excited to lead the opportunities I see for Penrith’s future and I am committed to working with the Council to see our shared vision for Penrith delivered.

“I understand our community’s aspirations; my family lives, works, is being educated and plays sport in our community. Penrith has a strong identity and I want to see that identity grow.”
