Outgoing Sunshine Coast Council CEO Emma Thomas has been appointed as interim chief executive to the independent Games Venue and Legacy Delivery Authority.

Sunshine Coast mayor Rosanna Natoli congratulated Ms Thomas and said the group was fortunate to have someone of her calibre take on the role.

“I am delighted for Emma, personally and for the region.”

Ms Thomas, who announced she would step down from her council position last week, has been appointed to the position for an initial period of six months, starting July 1.

She leaves Sunshine Coast Council on June 14.
