The new man at the helm of Scarborough Council will take charge for the first time at the end of this month

Michael Greene will officially start as the authority’s chief executive on Wednesday August 28.

Mr Greene has most recently worked as assistant director for Neighbourhood and Customer Services at Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council and has worked in senior roles in West Yorkshire and Greater Manchester.

He was recommended for the £112,000 a year role earlier this year by an appointments committee, made up of councillors from the major parties on the authority.

Speaking when his successful application was announced, Mr Greene said: “I am absolutely delighted to be recommended as the next chief executive of Scarborough Borough Council.

“It is a fabulous area with a great reputation and some exciting developments planned for the borough. I am looking to build on this by working in partnership with our communities to deliver the exciting vision for the area.”

The council’s previous chief executive Jim Dillon retired from his role at the end of June after 13 years at the helm.
