The following statement was issued following a media query about the role of Dr Fiona Gray, Manager Central Geelong and Waterfront. The response was attributed to Director Investment and Attraction Brett Luxford:
Dr Fiona Gray will be managing three key areas for the City - Central
Geelong Marketing, the Waterfront and Central Geelong Revitalisation.
A majority of her recent work with Deakin revolved around how
post-industrial regional cities can revitalise and create new industries to
cater for future growth.
This role with the City of Greater Geelong is the opportunity for Fiona
to put this theory into practice.
In taking this role Dr Gray has resigned from Deakin. She has been
invited to hold an honorary position as an Adjunct Associate Professor.
