Change of guard for pool operator


THREE out of five board members of Peninsula Leisure have been replaced in a significant shake-up.

Frankston Council confirmed that, three new “non-executive directors” have been appointed to the board. Mr Paul Faulkner, Mr Scott Nathan and Mr Rob Hines will replace outgoing board members Ms Barbara Cook, Mr David Shilbury and Mr Simon Allatson.

The terms for new board members run until 31 October, 2021. Mr Roseanne Healy and Mr Phillip Johnson remain on the board.

Peninsula Leisure operates the PARC swimming centre, and the Pines Forest Aquatic Centre on behalf of Frankston Council.

Outgoing Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton praised the “high quality” of the new appointees.

“We have continued to attract high quality candidates for these positions. This paired with the award-winning facilities managed and operated by the company demonstrates that Peninsula Leisure is a leader in the industry. It is a great outcome for Frankston City that we have this calibre of applicants wanting to work for our community,” he said.

“On behalf of Council and the community I would like to thank outgoing members Ms Barbara Cook, Professor David Shilbury and Mr Simon Allatson. Their service and direction during the important phase of establishing the award-winning facility has built a strong foundation, which continues to grow. With new state of the art facilities installed at PARC and a string of awards already, I am excited to see what the new team can achieve, with such a strong starting point.”
