Former Islington LBC boss Helen Bailey has been appointed as chief executive of Impower.
Ms Bailey, who joins the consultancy firm from her role as chief operating officer at the London Mayor’s Office for Police and Crime, has also previously been chief executive of Local Partnerships and director of public services at the Treasury.
Current chief executive Martin Creswell is to become vice-chair of the board where he will focus on developing the organisation’s relationships with the market.
Mr Creswell said: “I couldn’t wish for a more capable and accomplished individual than Helen Bailey to take over at Impower. Helen’s experience, with near two decades at the very top of public services; from local government, the Treasury, and the Mayor’s Office for Police and Crime, make her the ideal candidate to take Impower into the future.
Ms Bailey will join Impower on 1 August.
She said: “I’m delighted to be joining Impower at an important juncture in its history.
“As chief executive I look forward to taking Impower into the future, growing the organisation and supporting our clients to make public services fit for the communities they serve.”
