WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO LOCAL GOVERNMENT?

It seemed to fit well with my views on life - I was an optimistic young man fresh from planning school.

WHAT'S THE BEST THING ABOUT YOUR JOB?

Leading a team working to transform an entire town centre - a once-in-a-generation opportunity.

WHAT WAS THE BEST CAREER MOVE YOU EVER MADE?

My first job at Lewisham LBC. It was so much fun it convinced me to stay in local government and spurn academia.

WHAT DID YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GREW UP?

Like most children in the late 1960s, I wanted to be an astronaut. I'm still hopeful.
