Shayne Harris has been appointed as Chief Executive of the Manawatū District Council.

“Manawatū District Council has appointed Shayne Harris as Chief Executive for the next five years. Shayne has been Council’s Acting Chief Executive since Dr Richard Templer left for a position at Engineering New Zealand in November 2020.

Shayne started with Manawatū District Council in 2008 as the Support Services Group Manager and a year later became the General Manager – Corporate and Regulatory, which he did until he became Acting Chief Executive.

Born in Palmerston North, Shayne attended Palmerston North Boys High School before joining the NZ Army where he completed 23 years’ service in the Regular Force and Territorial Force.

After leaving the Army, Shayne completed 17 years at the Palmerston North City Council, starting as a Building Officer and becoming the Development Service Manager prior to moving to Manawatū District Council.

“I am delighted to be appointed as the Chief Executive of Manawatū District Council. I am looking forward to leading a fantastic team to support the Council and provide the best service we can to our community,” Shayne said.
