Charlie Adan today (10 August 2016) starts in her post as the new Chief Executive for the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, following the ‘resignation’ (at a cost of £250,000 to the taxpayer) of former CEO, Bruce McDonald.
Ms Adan was previously Chief Executive of the Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils. There, she was part of Suffolk’s Public Services senior leadership team, which led whole system public service reform in the county with other CEOs from local government as well health, police and voluntary and community services.
Kevin Davis, Leader of The Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames said:
“Charlie has real passion for resident engagement and understands that they come first. She brings a savvy commercial head and social heart which will help secure Kingston’s reputation as being the best place to live and work. This is an exciting new chapter for Kingston.”
