By Rob Freeman | 17th September 2020
Robert Weaver will make the move across Gloucestershire if he is approved by members of Cotswold District Council as the authority's next chief executive.
Mr Weaver, deputy chief executive at Tewkesbury Borough Council for the last three years, has been recommended by the cross-party statutory officer performance and appointments committee.
The full council will meet on Wednesday to confirm the appointment which also includes the roles of the head of paid service, returning officer and electoral registration officer.
Council leader Councillor Joe Harris said: "I am delighted to be able to recommend someone of Rob's calibre to the new post of chief executive and I'm particularly pleased the recommendation from our cross-party appointments panel was unanimous.
"Rob is a rising star in local government and has experience of both service delivery and setting wider strategy, he's really impressive.
"The new post, replacing the previous head of paid service post, is part of this administration's manifesto commitment to appoint a chief executive."
Mr Weaver has worked for Stroud District Council and High Peak & Staffordshire Moorlands District Council.
