Cornwall Council appoints Kate Kennally as new CEO
Since Andrew Kerr took the highroad and left Cornwall Council for Edinburgh City Council, the Council has been seeking to replace him via a recruitment process. That recruitment process has now been completed.
From a shortlist of four, Kate Kennally, who is currently the Director People at Barnett Council, has been appointed as Cornwall Council’s new CEO.
Her current role at Barnett has the responsibility for commissioning a wide portfolio of services including public health, children and adult services and community services such as leisure and libraries.
Her start date has yet to be confirmed because of working her notice at Barnet, but I expect Kate to take up post in the new year.
Congratulations to Kate on your appointment, and welcome to Cornwall Council.
