Nottingham chief departs

  • Comment

Nottingham City Council’s chief executive, Jane Todd, is leaving the role in order to recover from a brain operation.

Ms Todd is making “good progress” in recovering from an operation six months ago to remove a benign tumour from her brain, according to a statement from the authority. However, it says, she has decided that “in order to continue her recovery, the time is right to step down from one of the city’s highest profile jobs.”

Deputy chief executive Carole Mills-Evans will cover Ms Todd’s role until a permanent replacement is recruited.

Ms Todd, who became the council’s first female chief executive in May 2008, said in a statement: “I have always been totally committed to Nottingham, and feel truly privileged to have been able lead the council as its chief executive for the past four years.”

“I still have a lot of enthusiasm and drive, and I intend to keep on contributing to the city as I get stronger and, as hopefully, my health continues to improve.”
