Hull chief executive leaves position
Hull City Council has announced chief executive Nicola Yates has left her post.
The council issued a statement on Friday that she would be leaving with effect from Sunday (8 July).
Ms Yates was appointed as chief executive in November 2009 and no reason was given for her departure.
In the statement, she said: ‘My role as chief executive of Hull City Council has been enjoyable and challenging and I wish the council, its staff and the city the very best in the years ahead.’
Council leader, Cllr Stephen Brady, said: ‘I would like to take this opportunity to thank Nicola for her time, hard work and dedication to Hull and the council. I wish her all the best in the future.’
It's very fashionable to ditch your CE and then wonder why the position existed in the first place (see Herts CC and Kent). Perhaps it is believed another chief officer can perform the role in an extended lunch break. Common to all seems to be the exceptionally generous pay off's mocking the standard redundancies or degraded redeployment that worker ants can look forward to. Worse is the expenditure incurred to keep the severance terms a secret from the taxpayers.Patrick Newman, ex local government, Stevenage, Added: Monday, 9 July 2012 05:23 PM
