Alex Moar - Director Corporate & Community


I’ve been at Clarence Valley Council for a little over two years and in the Clarence Valley for ten years.  I am in the position Director Corporate & Community and I am looking forward to having a bigger impact on Council business.

After completing a Bachelor of Psychology at Macquarie University, I joined the NSW Police Force and worked in Sydney and Moree.

My career followed my passion for netball and I left the police to work for Netball NSW as a Regional Coordinator in Tamworth. 

Ten years ago, I moved to Grafton to take up a position as Assistant Manager Client Services at Acmena Youth Justice Centre where I was able to have a positive impact on the lives of young people. 

I found it was very rewarding working with youth and helping them choose pathways that created optimism in their lives and their communities.

After eight years at Acmena, I applied for the Manager Organisational Development position at council, an area I have a keen interest in.

I see a very bright future for the Clarence Valley and now that I am living out of town on 100 acres, I see myself living here for the rest of my life. 

I’m very passionate about working for government and am continually looking at implementing improvements that benefit the community.  I have completed other tertiary education in leadership and strategy management and like putting learning in action.

In my work and decision-making processes, my focus is not only from the perspective of an employee but is also as a ratepayer and resident of the Clarence Valley. 

The staff at council are amazing, hard-working people, and together we are dedicated to making Clarence Valley Council a strong and transparent council now and into the future.

One of my main goals is to ensure the Integrated Planning and Reporting Framework is embedded effectively at Council and that the delivery program, resourcing strategy and operation plan achieve what the community wants.
