Pippa Milne, Executive Director, will be Argyll and Bute Council’s new Chief Executive from 19 December.
Council Leader Aileen Morton: “We had a very strong pool of candidates to choose from. I would like to congratulate Pippa on securing this role, and I look forward to working with her, as Chief Executive, for the benefit of Argyll and Bute.”
Pippa, pictured above, will take up the post from 19 December, when Cleland Sneddon leaves for South Lanarkshire Council.
She brings with her 28 years of local government experience, five of them with Argyll and Bute Council.
As Executive Director she has led initiatives that will be key to developing a prosperous future for the area, most notably the Rural Growth Deal for Argyll and Bute.
Pippa said: “Argyll and Bute is an amazing area that deserves a prosperous future and I will work tirelessly to build this. I understand the challenges the area faces, and the difficulties this council deals with every day. I also see the opportunities for success that are there for us to take. It will be a privilege to work for Argyll and Bute as Chief Executive of its council.”
