Geoff Raw recommended for the appointment of Chief Executive

The unanimous endorsement of the recruitment panel is that Geoff Raw is recommended for the appointment of Chief Executive. This recommendation will go to Full Council for approval on Thursday, 22 October.

Warren Morgan, leader of Brighton & Hove City Council said: "I'm delighted that Geoff Raw will be recommended as Chief Executive, with unanimous cross party agreement, to lead the council into a period of enormous challenges, changes and opportunities.

“Geoff has been with the council for over five years across three different political leaderships, so he commands respect and goodwill across the chamber. He not only knows the city and the council inside out, but is someone with the experience, ideas and skills to tackle the extremely tough times we now must face together. One example of the kind of innovation he brings is the housing scheme I announced this week, which he has been instrumental in bringing together."
