It has been both a challenge and an honour to play such a crucial role in the workings of the Council and to lead my Service. However, I’m now looking forward to my retirement and travelling to far-off places.“
Paul Robinson, Chief Executive of Worcestershire County Council said; “I would like to thank Simon for his hard work and the dedication he has given to the Council over the past 21 years. His experience, advice and keen sense of humour will be sorely missed and I wish him all the best for the future.”
