Easter start for new chief

Posted onPosted on 27th Jan

Nottinghamshire County Council’s new Chief Executive will take up his post at Easter, it has been announced.

Anthony May, who was officially confirmed into the position at the last Full Council meeting, will replace Mick Burrows, who announced his plans to retire in September last year.

Anthony is currently the County Council’s Corporate Director for Children, Families and Cultural Services and Deputy Chief Executive. He was offered the post as Mick’s successor following an extensive national recruitment exercise.

Transition arrangements are now being finalised that will see Anthony take up the role at Easter, which coincides with the start of the new financial year.

Mick Burrows said: “I am delighted that Anthony has been appointed as the new Chief Executive and I know that he is keen to take over the reins as soon as possible. In consultation with lead Councillors, we have agreed that the start of the new financial year would be the ideal time to complete the handover.

“After more than 42 years of public service, including 20 years at Nottinghamshire County Council, I am retiring to spend more time with my family and friends. Working alongside the wider management team and myself, Anthony has played an integral role in the transformation of the Council in recent years and I am confident that he will be successful in continuing this journey in times to come. I wish Anthony and all County Council colleagues every success for the future.”
