Pendle BC has appointed its two remaining directors to its top jobs after deciding in September to delete the chief executive post.
Dean Langton, head of central and regeneration services, will become strategic director and head of paid service. He has worked at Pendle for eight years.
Deputy chief executive Philip Mousdale, who has been with Pendle for 29 years, will become corporate director, including the roles of monitoring and returning officer.
Both appointments will take effect on 1 April next year, after chief executive Stephen Barnes (pictured) is made redundant from his £85,000-a-year post.
Leader Joe Cooney (Con) said the changes agreed would help the council save money.
“We’ll be very sorry to lose Stephen but by taking this approach we can minimise the impact on frontline services,” he said.
