Liverpool City Council has finalised its new corporate management team, following the biggest management shake-up in its history.

Five executive directors have been appointed to form a new corporate management team, replacing nine outgoing directors and forcing council leader Mike Storey to defend his decision to award retirement packages worth a total of£2m.

Among those taking early retirement are assistant chief executive Alan Chape, director of resources Phil Kelly, housing director Mike Maunder and social services director Vic Citarella. In the past year, chief executive Peter Bounds, education director Frank Cogley and environmental services director John Liddle have also left the council.

The new management team, reporting to chief executive David Henshaw, comprises Colin Hilton, director of life-long learning and leisure services; Annie Shepperd, director of supported living and housing; Phil Halsall, director of resources; Charlie Parker, director of regeneration; and David McElhinney, director of central services.

Despite the fact that five directors are to take over the responsibilities of nine, Ms Shepperd said there was no danger of the new directors being overworked. They would be taking a 'corporate teamwork approach' to their duties, which would 'meet the needs of local people, rather than the needs of traditional organisational structure'.
