The Eastern Metropolitan Regional Council (EMRC) today announces the resignation of CEO Peter Schneider.

EMRC Chairman David McDonnell thanked Mr Schneider on his contribution to the EMRC over the last 12 years. Peter rejoined the EMRC in 2006 as the Executive Manager Corporate Services before being appointed the CEO in 2009.

“Peter’s leadership coincided with a period of growth in the EMRC’s core waste management services, which it manages on behalf of its six member Councils. During this time, we also conducted a successful tender for the Resource Recovery Facility. The EMRC’s role as advocate for Perth’s Eastern Region also expanded with the development of several regional initiatives designed to promote sustainable economic growth and quality of life for Perth’s Eastern Region,” Mr McDonnell said.

 “I would like to pay tribute to Peter’s many achievements as CEO, thank him for his outstanding service and wish him and his family our very best wishes for a successful future.”
