In this video, ICF Co-Founder Lou Zacharilla speaks about COVID-19 and other challenges with Sunshine Coast Mayor Mark Jamieson.
Sunshine Coast is a Top7 Intelligent Community of 2020.
Mark Jamieson has led a distinguished career in both the public and private sectors. He has approached all his roles with the personal ethos to not only do well, but do good.
He has been the Mayor of the Sunshine Coast Council (the fifth largest local government in Queensland) since April 2012. He was re-elected for a second term on 19 March 2016 with 76% of the vote on a two candidate preferred basis.
He is reshaping the Sunshine Coast economy, strengthening community programs and supporting and building on the region’s already outstanding environmental credentials.
This includes driving a major regional infrastructure program that has the most innovative mix of public and private investment opportunities in Australia. It is underpinned by a clear 20 year blueprint established for a new economy for the Sunshine Coast and which is already delivering results.
Prior to his election as Mayor in 2012, Mayor Jamieson enjoyed an extensive career of nearly 30 years in chief executive and senior leadership roles in media and publishing. He had strategic and operational responsibilities for customer satisfaction, staff development, business performance and shareholder growth. In 2006, he was appointed Chief Executive of APN Australian Publishing, where he was accountable for newspaper assets valued in excess of $1 billion.
