Tributes as county’s executive director dies

  • Comment

Cambridgeshire CC has announced the death of its executive director for adult and community services Rod Craig.

Council chief executive Mark Lloyd informed councillors this morning that Mr Craig had died last week.

He said Mr Craig had been a “well-liked and respected manager” who had always striven to provide the best services he could.

“As a director and former social worker he had an in-depth knowledge and understanding for those working on the frontline,” Mr Lloyd said.

“For those of us who worked closely with him, he was a good friend who was always there to provide support and challenge.

“His bright, intelligent and witty brand of management will be sorely missed and the county is a poorer place for his passing.

“Our thoughts at this time are with his family and friends.”

Council leader Nick Clarke (Con) said Mr Craig had been respected by councillors from across the political spectrum.

“His passionate drive to always get the best for the people of Cambridgeshire was very clear and he worked closely with all members to provide incisive information, ideas and support,” he said.

“He will be sadly missed by all those who worked with him and knew him.”
