New Lincolnshire County Council chief executive appointed
The new chief executive of Lincolnshire County Council has been appointed.
Debbie Barnes, who was interim head of paid service at the council, will take up the position on January 1.
Council leader Martin Hill said Mrs Barnes was the outstanding candidate from a final shortlist of three.
“I can only say that I am very supportive of this appointment,” he said.
Mrs Barnes was unanimously selected as the preferred candidate by the council’s appointments committee.
Mrs Barnes will retain the role of statutory director of children’s services until an appointment is made.
The authority has been without a chief executive since the departure of Keith Ireland in November 2018.
