Bournemouth chief announces retirement

  • Comment

Pam Donnellan, chief executive of Bournemouth BC, is to step down from her post in March

Ms Donnellan, who turns 65 next year, has more than 40 years’ experience in public service. She first joined Bournemouth in 2002 to become director of social services and was appointed chief executive in 2005.

Before coming to Bournemouth she was assistant director of social services for Haringey. Prior to her directorial roles she worked as a probation officer and as a social worker, working with children and families in inner city London.  

Ms Donnellan said: “As a chief executive, your successes are almost entirely due to other people’s endeavours and attributes.

“I have found incredibly dedicated staff here in Bournemouth. Many of them have remained with me and we are relatively strong as a council in this difficult and challenging time.

“Our response to recent events including the floods and the fatal Red Arrows crash sums up the resilience and commitment of staff, and epitomises what is really good about Bournemouth.”
