Shropshire Council names new chief executive

Andy Begley is the new chief executive designate at Shropshire Council., whose position is due to be rubber stamped at the next meeting of the full council on September 24.

The executive director of adult social care, public health and housing has also served as acting interim chief executive since March, alongside Karen Bradshaw, the council’s executive director of children’s services.

Peter Nutting, Leader of Shropshire Council, said: “The recruitment process was extremely competitive and we received applications from – and interviewed – some very strong and very impressive candidates. However, the interview panel felt that Andy was the best person to lead the council forward.”

Andy Begley said: “I’m really proud to be taking up the position and would like to thank the councillors for their offer and faith in me.

“Having worked as one of the interim chief executives for the best part of six months, I’d like to take this opportunity to praise and thank all the staff at Shropshire Council for their efforts throughout the floods and pandemic.

"I have been humbled by the coming together of the council, and look forward to leading the council through these challenging times and back into the good times.”
