Interim chief departs as unitary's search for replacement continues

  • 1 Comment

Wokingham BC’s interim chief executive has stepped down with immediate effect as the council continues to search for a permanent appointment.

In a statement Wokingham’s leader Charlotte Haitham Taylor (Con) said Manjeet Gill, who was appointed for an initial six months in August last year following the departure of Andy Couldrick to the Birmingham Children’s Trust, has decided “to pursue other opportunities”.

Deputy chief executive Heather Thwaites will replace Ms Gill until a permanent appointment is made, with a long-list currently being considered ahead of an expected appointment before Christmas.

Cllr Haitham Taylor said: “We would like to thank Manjeet for the energy and commitment she has shown to this borough in developing and building stakeholder relationships with groups such as the tenant and landlord involvement panel, representatives of our housing tenants, as well as partners including the NHS.”
