A new strategic director has been appointed at Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District Councils.
Following a rigorous selection process, led by councillors, Nick Khan emerged as the outstanding candidate and he will take up his position on July 12. Nick is currently an executive director with Rochford District Council in Essex. He is a qualified private and public sector lawyer and, alongside the managing director, leads the authority's senior management team.
Stephen Baker, chief executive of Suffolk Coastal and Waveney, said: 'We could not be happier to appoint a person of Nick's calibre to a critical role during a hugely important period in the history of the two councils. He has considerable, relevant experience which will complement the skills we have in place, while also strengthening our ability to deliver our ambitions for east Suffolk.'
Mr Khan's appointment fills a vacancy created by the departure of Arthur Charvonia to take up the role of joint chief executive for Babergh and Mid Suffolk councils.
