McLaren Construction has seconded its Group Director of Strategic Partnerships Kim Bromley-Derry to become Interim Chief Executive at Sandwell Council.
The Enquirer understands Bromley-Derry will work three days a week at the Labour-run council which has been hit by a series of recent departures.
He has more than 35 years of public sector experience and joined McLaren in 2018 to grow the partnership and joint venture side of the business.
Bromley-Derry remains a McLaren employee and will return full time to the business after helping out at Sandwell Council.
Councillor Rajbir Singh, the Leader of Sandwell Council, said: “I would like to welcome Kim as the new Interim Chief Executive. His experience, understanding and insight will be invaluable to us in delivering on our Vision 2030 for the people and businesses of Sandwell and I thank McLaren for releasing Kim to undertake this role.”
Bromley-Derry said: “I am enthusiastic about supporting Sandwell Council over the coming months as its Interim Chief Executive. I am looking forward to working with the councillors, managers, residents and staff in Sandwell in order to deliver the council’s Vision whilst in the role.”
