Technically, Stewart has had oversight and brought into effect a significant and innovative body of policy over the last decade including multiple planning schemes and priority development areas (including their background studies) for some of the country’s largest local governments, local area planning, economic development plans, attraction and incentivisation policy, and vegetation and koala management plans amongst a host of others.
Stewart’s breadth of experience includes general management, local government, the development and construction industries, public works, consultancy services, economic development and urban and regional planning. A skilled negotiator and driver of results, strong commercial acumen with intuitive government insights.
As a proven leader, Stewart has an innate ability to analyse in a way that achieves advantages whilst thriving in a world of complexity. Nowhere is this more evident than in his unique approach to policy creation and development advisory, which brings together commercial, political, community, and environmental drivers to create innovative outcomes for government and the private sector.
For the last decade I’ve led two of Australia’s largest planning divisions during periods of significant policy and political change. The success of my approach during this period unlocked significant investment, evolved the local government service delivery model, created more meaningful careers, and ultimately delivered outcomes for both customers and the communities we served. This experience has provided me with a unique insight on how to get things done from both the governments and customers perspectives.-Stewart Pentland
