Our round-up of the latest job moves and appointments.
Maldon DC’s chief executive Fiona Marshall has departed as her post has been deleted in a restructuring of senior management. A report which went before full council on 9 August said it was decided at the last full council meeting in July “to pursue and progress the option of a revised format for the corporate leadership team to consist of three directors, with no chief executive.” The head of paid service role has been taken up by director of service delivery Richard Holmes. Emmay Foy has been reappointed director of resources while Paul Dodson has taken up the new position of director of strategy performance and governance. This all comes amid a leadership change at the council.
Stroud DC has appointed Kathy O’Leary as its new chief executive. Ms O’Leary, who is currently strategic director of resources at Tandridge DC in Surrey, is expected to join the council in November. She will replace David Hagg, who has served in the post for 17 years and recently announced his intention to retire. Having started her career as a planning officer at Hampshire CC, Ms O’Leary has more than 32 years’ experience working in local government.
