Kirklees Council’s Chief Executive Officer Adrian Lythgo left his post for the final time on 17 February 2017.
Adrian has served Kirklees for 7 years, 6 of them as the Chief Executive. He made the announcement that he would be stepping down at the end of last year and over the last few months, he has been working closely with incoming Chief Executive Jacqui Gedman to ensure the transition in leadership is as smooth as possible.
Jacqui has been Director of Economy, Environment and Skills since 2011, having joined the council as a senior engineer in 2001, she took on the additional role of Assistant Deputy Chief Executive Officer in March 2016.
As Chief Executive of the Council Jacqui will be responsible for overseeing the management of the council’s budget, its internal structure and improving outcomes for the people of Kirklees.
Jacqui said: “I’d like to thank Adrian for the way he has steered us through some difficult times, he has been a huge support and influence for me personally. However, there is clearly still huge amounts to do regarding the budget, changing the shape of the council internally and promoting Kirklees as an attractive place to live and work. I am looking forward to the challenge ahead.”
