The big news of the week is Andrew Kerr, CEO of Cornwall Council has submitted completely out-of-the-blue his resignation from Cornwall. From the details I have, he is set to become the CEO of Edinburgh Council.As to the reasons why he is leaving, your guess is as good as mine….
The Leader of Cornwall Council has sent a message to all Councillors informing them:
“Today I have been informed by the Chief Executive Andrew Kerr that he will be leaving the authority to take up a new role as the Chief Executive of Edinburgh City Council.
I wish Andrew well in his new role and would like to thank him for what he has done for Cornwall. He leaves behind a strong and committed team of officers and Members who will work together to take the Council and Cornwall forward.
Andrew Kerr will be issuing the following statement to staff : “This was a difficult decision to make as I have thoroughly enjoyed my time in Cornwall but it is the right move for me at this time. I am very proud of what the Council has achieved over the past 18 months and am confident that both the Council and Cornwall are in a strong position to move forward”.
I will now be working with Members and the leadership team to make the necessary arrangements for the transition.”
