Suffolk: New Chief Exec Appointed

20 October 2011, 06:15

Suffolk County Council have appointed a new Chief Executive with a salary of £155,00 a year.

Deborah Cadman has 28 years’ public sector experience, six years of which was as chief executive at St Edmundsbury Borough Council.

She will be paid £155,000 per year and there will be no bonuses or annual pay increments. This salary is £63,592 less than the last person to do the job.

Deborah is currently the chief executive at the East of England Development Agency where in 2010/11 she supported the creation of 8,800 jobs and 2,800 new businesses in the east. Prior to her role at St Edmundsbury, she was a lead inspector at the Audit Commission and assistant chief executive at Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council.  

She will take the Suffolk County Council helm at a challenging time as the authority works to save £50m over the next two financial years.

Following her appointment, Deborah said:

“I’m delighted and honoured to be offered this role which for me is the most exciting job in Suffolk.

“The political direction at Suffolk County Council is clear and I want to work with the leadership, and with staff, who I know have a genuine commitment to delivering for the people of Suffolk.

“Throughout my career I’ve been committed to making a difference in the public sector. I’m going to use my experience and passion to make a difference for the whole of Suffolk.”
