Andrew Kerr proposed as new Cornwall Council Chief Executive

After two days of panels, tests and interviews, Andrew Kerr has been recommended as the new Chief Executive of Cornwall Council.

Andrew is currently Chief Operating Officer at Cardiff Council and was previously Chief Executive at Wiltshire and North Tyneside Councils.

I was one of the nine members of the interview panel and am delighted to be able to appoint Andrew. He was one of a very strong set of candidates and I'm confident will do a really good job with Cornwall Council.

Andrew must be formally approved by the full council when it meets on Tuesday.

Huge credit to Paul Masters who has steered the Cornwall Council ship as interim Chief Executive since the departure of Kevin Lavery. He has done a great job and will continue in the interim role until Andrew joins us.
