Barnet Council appoint Andrew Travers as interim chief executive
Barnet Council has appointed a new interim chief executive following the resignation of Nick Walkley earlier this month.
Deputy chief executive Andrew Travers will step up from his current role to fill the vacant post left by Mr Walkley for the next six months.
The decision, subject to full council approval on November 6, was made at yesterday’s remuneration committee meeting.
Mr Travers said: “This is an exciting moment to be appointed interim chief executive at Barnet Council.
“We will be delivering some of the key projects in our One Barnet change programme, but also developing our solutions to the challenges faced by the whole of local government over the next few years. We are currently well on course to do this.”
