Mr Tew said: “I am passionate about helping Birmingham City Council to make progress, and particularly motivated to work with elected members and the wide array of partner organisations and communities across this fantastic city.”

Having previously held senior officer posts at Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Blackburn with Darwen BC, and Durham CC Mr Tew said he was looking forward to “bringing my experience of partnership working between the public, private and voluntary sectors which will be crucial over the coming period.”

LGC reported last month how the government-appointed improvement panel is to remain in place at Birmingham City Council following the bin strike saga. At the time its chair John Crabtree said it would be “very beneficial” for a permanent chief executive, and leader, to be appointed “as early as possible”. However, interim chief executive Stella Manzie has decided she will not be applying for the job on a permanent basis.
