Chief executives in Bradford, Harrogate, Leeds, and the chief executive officer of the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy are among those to have been recognised in the Queen’s New Year Honours.

Leeds City Council’s chief executive, Tom Riordan, said he was ‘extremely humbled’ to be awarded a CBE for services to local government.

Mr Riordan, who joined Leeds in 2010, added: ‘I feel strongly that it is for the council, the city, the amazing people and communities I work with and everyone who’s invested in doing the best we can for the people of Leeds.

‘It’s a privilege to do this job for and with them.’

Chief executive of the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA), Rob Whiteman, has also received a CBE for services to public sector financial management.

His career in local government dates back to 1986, and he went on to become chief executive of Barking and Dagenham LBC and the UK Border Agency before joining CIPFA.
