HIRING two new managers will mean there are more women than men on the staff staff at Mosman Park Council.

“More than 52 per cent of staff are women, with 60 per cent at senior levels,” chief executive Mark Goodlet said.

However, there are only two female councillors, Jenna Ledgerwood and Zenda Johnson.

Mr Goodlet said the council had a diverse staff, with many born overseas, a depot staff member aged in his 70s, and three who had worked for the town for more than 20 years.

This week, he announced the appointment of planning and regulatory services executive manager Gabriela Poezyn and corporate services executive manager Bronwyn Rose to the administration.

South African-born Ms Poezyn has more than 20 years of WA local government employment in statutory and strategic planning, while Ms Rose is a chartered accountant and internal auditor with 25 years consulting to state and local governments.

The appointees will join technical services manager of two years Matthew Macpherson in leading the council’s three departments.
