Jim Stabback

Chief Executive, Auckland Council

I joined Auckland Council as its third Chief Executive on 1 September 2020.

I spent much of my early working life in Australia in the financial services, telecommunications and technology sectors – my time at these large service-based organisations has provided me with a strong focus on customer service delivery.

On moving to New Zealand in 2011, I worked for Westpac before joining ACC as its Deputy Chief Executive and Chief Operating Officer.

I love the diversity of what the council does, and I recognise the criticality of those services to the growth and success of Auckland and all Aucklanders.
