Auckland Council Chief Operating Officer Dean Kimpton has resigned from his position at Auckland Council and will depart at the end of May.
“I have made the difficult decision to resign from my role and plan on taking some time off and having a decent holiday.
“I have had an amazing five-plus years. I have loved the people, the pace, the issues and challenges that have come my way.
“I have learnt so much, but best of all has been serving the people of Auckland and supporting our staff to do the same.
“I hope that on the way through I have contributed to making council and Auckland a better place,” says Dean.
Auckland Council Chief Executive Stephen Town says Dean has overseen some significant changes in the Operations Division that have changed the organisation’s way of working and focused on customer experience.
“Dean has been a pivotal figure in his five and half years here and leaves the council and the Operations division in great shape to help us continue to deliver for Aucklanders.
“Dean will be with us for some months yet and I will use that time to work with him on next steps for the leadership of the Operations Division,” says Mr Town.
