St Edmundsbury chief to head development agency

  • Comment
Deborah Cadman, the chief executive of St Edmundsbury BC, has been appointed to head the East of England Development Agency (EEDA).

Ms Cadman, who is also currently interim chief executive of neighbouring Waveney DC , takes over from David Marlow, who has been EEDA's chief executive since 2003.

She led St Edmundsbury to an 'excellent' performance rating, and to a reputation as one of the country's top district authorities.

Before joining St Edmundsbury, Ms Cadman worked for a number of metropolitan and unitary councils and the Audit Commission , where she was a lead inspector in London.

"This is one of the most exciting, important and challenging economic development roles in the UK and I'm really looking forward to being able to play a major part in the success of the East of England," said Ms Cadman.

"I'm passionate about helping people, communities and businesses achieve their potential and this will be an essential part of my new role at EEDA."
