AFTER six and a half years at the helm of St Albans district council, chief executive Daniel Goodwin is leaving tomorrow.

He is moving from the district council which he joined in 2006 to become executive director for finance and policy at the Local Government Association.

His role will be temporarily taken on by the current deputy chief executive for public services, James Blake, leaving the other deputy chief executive, Coim O’Callaghan, who is responsible for finance to concentrate on the council’s 2013/14 budget.

Mr Goodwin’s departure is the catalyst for an internal restructure which will combine the chief executive’s role with one of the two deputy chief executive roles.

It means that both Mr Blake and Mr O’Callaghan can apply for the chief executive vacancy.
