Andrew Kerr approved as new Cornwall Council chief executive

Andrew Kerr was today approved as the new Cornwall Council Chief Executive. He will take up the post in the New Year.

Although selected by the panel last week, the appointment of a chief exec needs to be approved by the full council. This happened today and Mr Kerr was voted in with one vote against and around a dozen abstentions.

The council also gave its thanks to Paul Masters who has acted as interim chief executive since March and who will continue in the role until Mr Kerr arrives. Paul has seen the council through a massive set of elections, the formation of a new administration and a hugely challenging budget process (although this bit hasn't ended yet). He has used his great skill and experience to make sure all of these happened smoothly.
