Our team is motivated to achieve our Shareholder’s goals and we believe that we are doing something worthwhile and making a difference to the community and the City of Logan. 

The team objectives are to:

  1. ensure that we have the right people, with the right skills, in the right jobs, at the right time;
  2. ensure a strong focus on achieving excellence in outcome delivery; 
  3. focus on outstanding service to our Shareholder and customers;
  4. have a motivated, well-informed leadership team; 
  5. provide learning and development opportunities for all in the best interests of investLogan. 

Our organisational structure is aligned to our statutory and constitutional responsibilities. To support these responsibilities our structure includes a Chief Executive Officer, Company Secretary, Head of Development, Head of Finance, Head of Corporate Governance, Development Manager and Office Manager and relies on external consultants for inputs.
