Organisational structure

In accordance with the Local Government Act 1995, Council determines the organisational structure and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is responsible for management of the structure, including functional responsibilities and allocation and management resources within that structure.

The City of Swan is led by Jeremy Edwards who operates under guidance of the elected Council. The CEO is also responsible for the overall strategic direction and day to day operational activities, and along with the Executive team and staff, acts on Council’s decisions through development and deployment of Council policies and resolutions. The Executive team includes four Executive Managers who together with the CEO lead and manage business units across the organisation.
