East Lindsey DC has named Rob Barlow as its chief executive.
He has been the council’s deputy chief executive since 2010 and replaces Stuart Davy who retired in October.
Leader Craig Leyland (Con), said: “The role attracted a field of exceptional candidates, but the skills, experience and abilities demonstrated by Rob during the recruitment process made him the committee’s preferred candidate for the role.”
Mr Barlow said: “I am delighted to have been successful in the recruitment process and very much look forward to working alongside councillors, officers and partner organisations to ensure residents continue to receive quality services.
“At the same time, the council has an ambitious programme of work focused on growth and job creation and I look forward to helping to drive that vision forward.”
