Westminster chief takes up top Channel Islands job

  • Comment

Westminster City Council chief executive Charlie Parker has been appointed new chief executive for States of Jersey.

Chief minister Ian Gorst made the announcement today.

Mr Parker is to leave Westminster in January. Stuart Love, the council’s executive director for city management and communities, is expected to deputise Mr Parker from September before becoming acting chief executive in January until a permanent appointment is made.

Mr Parker joined Westminster in 2013 having spent five years as Oldham MBC chief. He is also a former executive director of regeneration at Liverpool City Council, and head of Manchester City Council’s inner city development.

Westminster leader Nickie Aiken (Con) said: “Jersey’s gain is very much Westminster’s loss. I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Charlie for his tremendous contribution to the council and to the entire City of Westminster.

“He has overseen significant progress and change within the council, meeting the council’s budget pressures and establishing new ways of working. Charlie has also been an integral part of the council’s relationship with external partners and stakeholders, most notably through the formation of the successful West End Partnership.”
