Welsh chief to stand down

  • Comment

The chief executive of Wrexham CBC has announced plans to stand down and pursue a different career

Isobel Garner, who has been chief executive of the north Wales council for seven and a half years, said she had been “considering this big personal step and life change for some time”.

In a statement she said she would “miss the people I have worked with”, but had decided that “the time has come for me to take a career break and refresh myself for a new direction in my career.

“It is now time for others to see the council’s transformation and collaboration plans through to fruition as I stand aside. My leaving date will be agreed in due course.”

Wrexham’s leader, Aled Roberts (Lib Dem), said he was “saddened by this news but appreciate the extended notice Isobel is giving us of her intentions”.

A spokeswoman for the council said a date for Ms Garner’s departure had not yet been set.

Cllr Roberts added: “Isobel has been a strong chief executive and has had an extremely positive influence on Wrexham council’s culture that has continued to drive our performance forward. As leader I have enjoyed our strong working relationship over the last five years.”
