First Ever Woman Appointed As Chief Executive
At last week’s Chief Officers' Employment Committee the committee passed the recommendation to appoint Carol Cooper-Smith as the interim Chief Executive of Ashfield District Council.
Carol, who has previously been the Interim Service Director, Place and Communities at ADC, will be the first female Chief Executive for Ashfield District Council or the Urban Councils that proceeded it.
Councillor Jason Zadrozny, Leader of Ashfield District Council said “It is a conscious decision of this administration to recommend that a female is appointed to be the interim CEO. Carol has a wealth of experience, including four years at Ashfield District Council and I am pleased that she will be returning to the authority to take on this role.
“Carol will be in position for up to ten months whilst we recruitment for a permanent Chief Executive.”
Carol Cooper-Smith will take over from Rob Mitchell the current CEO, when he leaves the authority in September.
