Haringey Council appoints new Chief Executive
Haringey Council has appointed a new chief executive to help deliver its ambitions for the borough.
Nick Walkley will take up the post following a unanimous decision by a cross-party recruitment panel.
Nick is currently chief executive at neighbouring Barnet and has extensive local and central government experience including roles at the Department for Communities and Local Government, and the Improvement and Development Agency.
Council Leader Claire Kober said:
"I’m delighted that Nick will be joining Haringey at what is an important time. We are ambitious about the future of our borough and I’m confident that Nick will play a pivotal role in ensuring Haringey become one of the best places to live and work in London."
"I am hugely excited by the opportunity to take up this role with Haringey Council and I am committed to working with all councillors to address the many challenges facing local government."
The appointment is subject to ratification by full council, which will meet on Tuesday 16 October.
Nick will be paid £189,440, which is at the mid-point of the council’s Chief Executive pay scale. This is the same as the council’s previous chief executive and less than Nick’s current salary at Barnet Council.
