12.19AM: A former Albury Council chief executive has been given the top job at Moira Council. 

Mark Henderson has been announced as the shire's new chief executive after he resigned from the same position at the Mildura Regional City Council last week. 

Mr Henderson was a former chief executive at the Alpine Shire and also held the top job at Albury Council from 2001 to 2005.  

Moira mayor Peter Mansfield said his knowledge of the Murray region played a part in his selection for the role. 

Peter Bertolus has been filling the position in an acting capacity in recent times when the council has come under the spotlight of the Local Government department for governance related matters.

“Mark’s experience running regional councils and his knowledge of agriculture and regional tourism will be invaluable to helping to grow the shire’s economy," Cr Mansfield said.

Mr Henderson replaces Gary Arnold, who was dismissed late last year.

He will move to the region this month and is expected to start work with the Moira Shire in May.
