Statement: chief executive Clive Wright departure
As has been reported, chief executive Clive Wright left Shropshire Council by mutual agreement on Tuesday 25 February 2020. This followed a Conservative Group Meeting on Monday 24 February.
We would like to thank Clive for his hard work and commitment over the past eight years. During that time he has successfully led the council during the years of austerity local government has faced, balancing challenging budgets and delivering some very innovative projects. We wish him well for the future.
We confirm that Andy Begley, executive director of adult social care and housing, and Karen Bradshaw, executive director of children’s services, will be joint acting chief executive during the interim period, whilst permanent arrangements are put in place.
