Mr Whiteley has been interim chief executive of the combined authority since it was created in March.

The appointment was confirmed by mayor James Palmer (Con) at the CA’s board meeting today.

Mr Whiteley is a former chief executive of consultancy firm Blue Marble Group and is also a former managing director of Capita Consulting, the management consultancy arm of the Capita Group.

Mr Palmer said: “I am very much looking forward to working alongside Martin and ensuring that devolution delivers what it should for local people. He is a highly experienced individual and will bring valuable skills to the combined authority as we work to bring real change to the region and bring further powers to the area from Westminster.”

Mr Whiteley said he was “delighted to have been offered the post” and added he was “excited by the challenge ahead”.

“Local people voted for devolution and the responsibility is now ours to take that power from central government to deliver schemes, initiatives and action which will result in greater economic prosperity and quality of life for communities in the region,” he said.

Yesterday, the West Midlands Combined Authority appointed Suffolk CC’s chief executive Deborah Cadman to its top role.
