At a meeting of Full Council, members of West Sussex county Council have agreed the appointment of Becky Shaw as Joint Chief Executive in a new partnership arrangement with East Sussex county Council.
Becky Shaw will take up the new post on 6 January, 2020.
The new approach will see East Sussex County Council become the corporate improvement partner for West Sussex County Council.
Leader of West Sussex County Council Paul Marshall said: “I am delighted that Becky Shaw is to join West Sussex County Council as the new joint Chief Executive.
“She comes with a very good track record and I am looking forward to working with her and colleagues at East Sussex County Council - our corporate improvement partner.
“I don’t underestimate the scale of the challenges we face but I am confident Becky’s experience and leadership will help us continue our improvement journey.”
This proposal will also be recommended to East Sussex County Council’s cabinet when it meets on tomorrow (Wednesday, 18 December 2019).
