VBA names new Chief Executive
The Chief Commissioner of the Victorian Building Authority (VBA), Dr Owen Donald, today announced the appointment of Ms Sue Eddy as the building regulator’s new CEO.
Ms Eddy’s appointment follows an extensive search and selection process that commenced in June this year when Prue Digby announced her intention to retire from the role.
“I am pleased to announce the appointment of Sue Eddy as the VBA’s new CEO. Sue is a talented leader with an impressive track record in fiscal management, operational strategy and stakeholder engagement, and was selected from a strong field of worthy candidates,” said Dr Donald.
A former Associate Chartered Accountant, Sue Eddy is currently Lead Deputy Secretary Corporate Services at the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources where she has direct responsibility for the department’s near $2 billion operating budget and over 300 staff. She previously headed the Budget Strategy and Reform branch of the Department of Treasury and Finance, overseeing the development of successive State Government budgets.
In announcing the appointment, Dr Donald also paid tribute to Ms Digby.
