Mayor, Mackay Regional Council
A fifth generation Mackay local, Mayor Greg Williamson has a genuine enthusiasm for the region. He has returned to the top job, having been mayor of the then Mackay City Council from 1991 to 1994 prior to amalgamation with the former Pioneer Shire Council. Since then he has gained vast management experience in large businesses and brings that skillset back to the role. Cr Williamson has a long history of service to the community, ranging from Rotary to the then Small Business Association and Mackay Tourism and more than 35 years of service with the Australian Air Force Cadets. Mayor Williamson is committed to transparency and his new council has established four statutory committees to replace the previous portfolio system.
