His most recent role was as CEO for the Shire of Menzies in Western Australia where he was highly active in bringing growth and investment to the shire and greater region. 

Cook Shire Mayor Peter Scott said Mr Joiner was a fine addition to the team at council and his experience and portfolio was very welcome. 

“Brian also has demonstrated experience driving and delivering dynamic and synergistic investment and economic development opportunities to regional areas, and communities,” Mayor Scott said. 

Having lived and worked in remote communities for much of his life and career, Mr Joiner will be relocating to Cooktown with his wife Eve ahead of commencing his new role as CEO in August.
