In­terim chief takes over

Glamorgan Gazette - - Brassbandnotes -

THE com­mu­ni­ties di­rec­tor at Brid­gend County Bor­ough Coun­cil (BCBC) is to be­come the in­terim chief ex­ec­u­tive of the lo­cal au­thor­ity.

Mark Shep­hard will take over the lead­er­ship on an in­terim ba­sis when Dar­ren Mepham leaves.

Mr Mepham who joined BCBC as chief ex­ec­u­tive six years ago is tak­ing on a new role as chief ex­ec­u­tive for Bar­net and South­gate Col­lege in North Lon­don.

At a coun­cil meet­ing in Novem­ber coun­cil leader Huw David said the lo­cal au­thor­ity would be ad­ver­tis­ing na­tion­ally for a per­ma­nent chief ex­ec­u­tive in the New Year as this was “the best time of year” to re­cruit a se­nior man­ager in the pub­lic sec­tor.

Mr Shep­hard’s first day as the in­terim chief ex­ec­u­tive was on Mon­day.

He was ap­pointed to the role at a full coun­cil meet­ing on De­cem­ber 19.
