Rother Alliance welcomes new Chief Executive for Rother District Council

Following a multi-phased interview and selection process, a motion to appoint Lorna Ford as Rother District Council's new Chief Executive was passed at Full Council, July 31st.

Having had an excellent start at Rother, first as the Deputy Chief Executive and then recently as the Interim Chief Executive, Lorna Ford's appointment has been warmly welcomed by the Rother Alliance administration.

Speaking in a Rother District Council press release, Council Leader Doug Oliver said, "I am delighted that Lorna has accepted the position. She has extensive experience in various senior roles within local government, nearly two years as Deputy Chief Executive, and has the insight to bring forward the aspirations of the council following the uncertainty of the last four years. Lorna has full support of Members and staff.”

It is hoped that Lorna's leadership will help bring forward the administration's vision for the District and enable the Council's current priorities, as laid out here, to be delivered.
