Northants announces new finance director and section 151 officer

  • Comment

Northamptonshire CC has appointed a new director of finance and section 151 officer, who is expected to start in post from November.

Ian Duncan, currently interim director of finance and procurement at Wiltshire Council, replaces Mark McLaughlin, who announced his departure from the authority in July.

The two positions are currently being held temporarily by James Smith until Mr Duncan joins the council.

Northamptonshire leader Matthew Golby (Con) said in July that Mr McLaughlin agreed it was “only right that he steps aside” as the council was “moving into its next phase” of negotiating its financial future.

Shortly after the announcement, Mr McLaughlin issued the council’s second section 114 notice in six months.
