Mr Brien held the position of CEO at the City of Bayswater for the past four years. During this time he was announced Leader of the Year in Local Government at the 2020 Institute of Public Administration WA Achievement Awards.

With extensive experience as the CEO of regional councils in the eastern states, as well as Bunbury, Western Australia, Mr Brien is looking forward to a new challenge and has accepted the position of CEO at the City of Kalgoorlie- Boulder.

“While I am incredibly proud of what I have achieved at the City of Bayswater this new position offers me an opportunity to make a difference within regional Western Australia. This is something I am particularly passionate about.   

Since taking up the role of CEO at the City of Bayswater in 2017, Mr Brien led the organisation through a significant restructure to improve service delivery, while focusing on an internal culture of support and excellence.

“I came to Bayswater with a clear vision. To raise customer service standards and deliver the high quality services that our community value. I wanted to create a high performing organisation that is both efficient and innovative. I believe I have achieved that,” Mr Brien said.

“Over the past four years, I have had the privilege of leading an organisation with a workforce and Executive team who are passionate about the work they do on behalf of the community.

“With their support, and that of Council, we have positioned the City strongly for growth and have cemented the City’s reputation as an industry leader.

City of Bayswater Mayor, Filomena Piffaretti acknowledged the strong leadership Mr Brien has provided over the past four years.

“I have enjoyed working with Andrew over the past two years as Deputy Mayor and I was looking forward to working with him more closely as Mayor.

“As a Council, we have valued his expertise and leadership. He has been an asset to the City of Bayswater and while we are sad to see him go, he has our full support and we wish him the very best in his new role.”

“His vision and drive have established the City as industry leader."
