District chief to leave for Channel Island role

  • Comment

Newark and Sherwood DC chief executive Andrew Muter is to leave his post after 11 years to take up a new role on the Channel Islands.

Mr Muter will leave the Nottinghamshire district in early February to become chief executive of the States of Alderney, the most northern of the three inhabited Channel Islands. It covers about three square miles and has a population of around 2,000.

A council press release announcing Mr Muter’s departure highlighted his contribution to helping the council “extend its influence” and secure “vital” investment in transport infrastructure as well as launch an “ambitious council house-building programme”.

Mr Muter said: “This has been a huge team effort from council staff who are some of the best people I have ever worked with. And it has been a privilege to work with Newark and Sherwood’s councillors who have been bold and ambitious for the district.”

Council leader Roger Blaney (Con) said: “Over the past 11 years, Andrew has been a highly effective and successful chief executive. He has gained the respect of all staff and members locally as well as his fellow chief executives not just in Nottingham but also regionally and nationally. He has overseen and implemented a number of major initiatives and has managed the council with vison during a period of unprecedented pressure on local government finances.

“On a personal level, I have enjoyed and valued working with Andrew and I wish him every success as he takes on this new and exciting challenge.”
