Chief Executive to leave Haringey

Publication date: Tuesday 19 June 2012

Haringey Council Chief Executive Kevin Crompton today (18 June 2012) announced he is leaving the authority in July.

Kevin said:

“I have guided the council through one of the most difficult periods for local government, achieved the objectives agreed when starting the job and believe I leave a strong legacy for my successor.

“The Leader and I have agreed that the agenda which Haringey now faces could benefit from a chief executive with different skills and personal horizons. Leaving the authority will also enable me to develop my own interests after nearly 30 years of continuous local government service.

“I want to thank the Leader and elected members for the opportunity to work in such an exciting borough, to my senior colleagues and all the staff for their commitment, support and achievements, and to all the partner agencies with whom I’ve worked for their support.

“It has been a privilege to have been the Chief Executive of this borough.”  

Directors of the council will provide senior leadership until a successor is appointed.   

Council Leader Claire Kober said:  

“I’m very grateful to Kevin for the contribution he has made to the council in the last two years.

“During that time we've had to deal with the impact of huge government cuts and other challenges but he has worked diligently to ensure we continue delivering on our priorities.

“I wish him well for the future.”

Cllr Kober added:  

“Until the appointment of a successor to Kevin, I’m confident the senior team can provide the necessary executive leadership of the council.”
