Paul Stephenson OAM (Retired Chairman/Trustee)
Paul Stephenson retired from the position of Chairman and Trustee of the Veolia Mulwaree Trust in December 2014. Paul was instrumental in founding the Veolia Mulwaree Trust during his long career in local government. Paul was the Mayor of Mulwaree Shire Council for 12 years before becoming the Mayor of the newly amalgamated Goulburn Mulwaree Council in 2004, a position he held until his retirement from local government in 2008. Mr Stephenson was awarded an OAM for service to local government and his work in the community through the Veolia Mulwaree Trust. Paul’s contribution to the Trust continues to be greatly missed by his staff, fellow Trustees and the countless community organisations who benefitted from his hard work and vision over the years.
