Graham Allen

The chief executive of Rushcliffe Borough Council is to step down from his role after 13 years.

Allen Graham said he is resigning from the Council so that it can “assess new executive leadership from a position of strength”.

Deputy chief executive Kath Marriott will been appointed interim chief executive when Graham leaves later this year.

Graham said: “It has been a difficult and emotional decision to leave such a fantastic and wonderful workplace, community and council.

“After 13 years you get attached to the place, the people and the work you do, especially in Rushcliffe where there is an ambition, energy and a determination to deliver high quality services, value for money and an exciting future.

“We have continually developed a unique team who are well placed to carry the organisation forward. I am so proud of each and every one of them and wish to thank them for all their dedication, talent and the faith in myself.”
