The new chief executive of Sheffield City Council is to be Bob Kerslake, who has been chief executive of Hounslow LBC since 1991.
He will replace Pamela Gordon, who retires in May.
Mr Kerslake is expected to take up his appointment - which was advertised at a salary of up to£90,000 - in the next three months.
He was formerly borough treasurer of Hounslow and previously assistant finance director of the Inner London Education Authority. Before that, he worked for the Greater London Council.
Sheffield City Council leader Mike Bower said: 'We are delighted that Mr Kerslake has agreed to join us. We want a new chief executive who will give the council a clear strategic direction and strong leadership, and put service to the people of Sheffield at the top of his agenda.'
