Market Square

Nottinghamshire County Council has appointed a new Chief Executive on a fixed rate salary of £170,000 a year.

Anthony May, the current Deputy Chief Executive, will be stepping up to the Chief Executive role when the current chief, Mick Burrows, retires in the summer.

The appointment is subject to the approval of councillors at the full council meeting later this month.

The 51-year-old, who is also the current corporate director for children, families and cultural services, said that he wanted to pay tribute to Mick for the ‘excellent’ job he has done.

He added: “I feel very privileged to be appointed to this new role at such an important point in the future of local government.

“I’m looking forward to taking up the reins next year when Mick Burrows retires.”

Anthony joined Nottinghamshire County Council in June 2004 as Assistant Director for the Young People’s Division.

He was then formally appointed as Director of the Children and Young People’s Department in September 2008.

Commenting on the appointment of his successor, Mick Burrows said that he is delighted that Anthony was the person chosen for the job.

He added: “The post of Chief Executive is extremely demanding but, having worked closely with Anthony for a number of years, I know he will excel in the role and provide the excellent leadership needed to steer the authority through this period of unprecedented change.”
