Worcestershire's interim chief executive dies

  • 1 Comment

Worcestershire CC’s interim chief executive Steve Stewart has died.

Mr Stewart, who was aged 64, passed away on Wednesday night. His family has been informed.

He joined the council in May last year. He had a career lasting more than 40 years in local government, which included serving as chief executive at two other councils: City of York Council and Northumberland CC.

Worcestershire’s deputy leader Adrian Hardman (Con) said: “This is very sad news. Our thoughts are with his family at this very sad time. Steve made a big contribution to this council during his time with us and for that we are really grateful. He will be sadly missed by everyone.”

LGC previously reported how Derby City Council’s chief executive Paul Robinson had already been appointed to become Worcestershire’s permanent chief executive. Mr Robinson is due to take up the post in spring.

Local Government Association chief executive Mark Lloyd last night tweeted: ”Just yesterday he and I had a lively and energetic discussion about his massive contribution to #LocalGov and his ambitions to do much more in the future… What a huge loss to all of us.”
