Bournemouth finance director resigns after complaints

  • Comment

A senior officer has left Bournemouth BC after unspecified complaints about her conduct.

The council said in a statement that executive director for finance Liz Wilkinson had resigned and that Ian Milner, corporate and commercial service director, would replace her on an acting basis.  

A separate council statement issued earlier this month said: “We can confirm that the executive director for finance has been suspended following complaints from a number of senior officers about the postholder’s behaviour.

“An external, independent investigation is now pending. Until that has been concluded and in order to ensure a fair and unhindered investigation, it would be inappropriate to comment further.”

Ms Wilkinson was in charge of strategic services, legal and democratic services, customer services and strategic finance.

She joined Bournemouth in 2012 having been head of finance at neighbouring Borough of Poole.
