A new chief executive has been recommended for appointment at St Albans district council.
Amanda Foley, who is currently head of corporate services, has been recommended for the role by the council’s employment procedure committee. The recommendation will be made to councillors at the council meeting on Wednesday, July 12.
At their May meeting, councillors agreed a process for the appointment of a new chief executive, following the announcement that the current chief executive is leaving to head up the Youth Hostels Association (England and Wales).
Amanda, who lives in the district with her family, is currently responsible for customer services, HR and IT, among other areas of council business.
She has previously worked in the civil service and the retail and banking sectors. She joined the council in 2009 from Ofsted, where she was head of HR strategy.
