A former board member of the Department of Communities’ disability services commission and a 28-year veteran of engineering consultancy firm Arup round out two major hires at the City of Perth.

Those hires come two months after Business News reported that former Optus Stadium head of media, communications and government relations Graham Mason would join the city as alliance manager of corporate communications.

General manager of community development alliance Anne Banks-McAllister has since notified the city that she will be leaving to move closer to family in the Great Southern region.

Talis Consultants, Perth Airport and Arup alum Allan Mason will now join the city as general manager of infrastructure and operations, replacing outgoing Chris Kopec.

Elsewhere, AusGroup general manager of legal and risk Michelle Antonio will serve as general counsel.

City of Perth chief executive Michelle Reynolds said the hires come at an exciting and invigorating time for the organisation.

“I am delighted that so many highly qualified professionals from a wide range of sectors applied for these two positions,” she said.

“It is testament that the City of Perth has entered a new era and many people now want to be part of this wonderful organisation and contribute the future of our capital city.

“I take pride in being able to bring together such a strong new leadership team that are dedicated, innovative and committed to the future of the City of Perth.

“I’m delighted to welcome Allan and Michelle to the City of Perth and look forward to working with them.”
