About Mark Currie
Raised and educated in Wangaratta I have a true passion for what Wangaratta offers and I want to be part of assisting it in reaching its full potential.
I grew up in Yarrunga attending the Yarrunga Primary School and later the Wangaratta Technical College. As I transitioned into work, like many other Wangaratta residents I found myself working in Manufacturing at both Bruck Textiles and the Australian Country Spinners.
With a desire to continue my education I undertook part time studies in Accounting at Charles Sturt University in Albury while maintaining my fulltime employment. Once qualified, I transitioned from Manufacturing into the Finance sector followed by Local Government before finding my calling in the Not for Profit sector.
I ran for Council with a focus on growing Wangaratta’s Economic Development opportunities to ensure that Wangaratta remains an attractive and viable city. My vision is that we are a transparent Council who actively engages with the community to deliver outcomes that make Wangaratta a better place to live, work and play, and that we’re proud to call our home.
He was elected at the 2016 council elections in the Warby Ward.
