“I look forward to meeting the councillors, our communities and the hard working team of officers and partners who deliver services to the residents of the borough.

Windsor & Maidenhead leader Simon Dudley (Con) said the recruitment process had been “extensive” and included psychometric tests.

He added: “I am sure [Mr Sharkey] will be a huge asset to the royal borough and help us deliver a range of front line services for our council as well as ensuring we continue to deliver a balanced budget, focus on performance and ensure we monitor the range of commissioned services including adults, children’s and highways.”

Mr Sharkey is set to replace Windsor & Maidenhead’s acting managing director Russell O’Keefe.
