South Staffs chief exec retires DB

  • Comment

South Staffordshire District Council’s chief executive is to step down from the authority after five years at the helm.

Rolf Levesley joined the council as its solicitor in 1981 before being appointed chief executive in 2004.

He has announced his intention to retire from the post in June this year.

Mr Levesley said he believed he would be handing on an authority that was well-placed for the future.

“I have very much enjoyed my time at South Staffordshire Council largely due to the excellent group of colleagues, both members and officers, who I have had the pleasure of working with,” he said.

“I do feel that I am leaving the Council in a good condition, ready to face the undoubted challenges ahead.”

Council leader Brian Edwards (Con) paid tribute to Mr Levesley’s commitment to the authority during his almost three decades of service.

“Rolf is highly respected and has been a committed chief executive whose hard work and dedication to the district has been exemplary,” he said.

“I would like to publicly thank him, on behalf of all of the members, for all he has done for the council.

“I believe that we are now beginning to reap the benefits of the changes he has brought in over the past four years.”
