I welcome the appointment of Stephen Griffin as Victoria State Emergency Service (SES) Chief Executive Officer (CEO).
Mr Griffin was the former CEO of the City of Greater Geelong and brings to the SES a great deal of experience gained over decades working in various roles in local government, working with corporate, government and community stakeholders.
On behalf of the Victorian Coalition Government, I would like to congratulate Mr Griffin on his recent appointment and look forward to working positively with him, in what is an exciting new chapter for the SES.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank John Casey who has been acting CEO since January this year.
Mr Casey will continue as acting CEO until Mr Griffin begins in May.
