Ex-Barnet chief gets prominent London interim role

  • Comment

Former Barnet LBC chief executive Andrew Travers is set to become Lambeth LBC’s acting chief executive.

LGC previously reported how Sean Harriss had resigned due to ill health.

Lambeth has decided to make an interim appointment before conducting a search for a permanent replacement for Mr Harriss.

In a report due to go before full council next Wednesday it recommends “that Andrew Travers is appointed as the acting chief executive and head of paid service with effect from 23 October 2017 and as interim chief executive and head of paid service with effect from 16 November 2017”.

Mr Travers resigned from his role at Barnet following blunders with electoral registers at elections in 2016.

The report revealed that four of Lambeth’s strategic directors have provided cover for Mr Harriss since June. “However given the amount of work the organisation is currently undertaking this arrangement is no longer sustainable,” it said.
