City Council appoints chief

 The Birmingham Mail has reported that Stella Manzie has become the interim Chief Executive replacing Mark Rogers who left under secretive circurmstances .

She  was recently sent by Government to crisis-hit Rotherham to help clear up the council in the wake of the grooming gangs and child sexual exploitation scandals. She has a reputation for turning around "failing councils".

For this post ,the Mail reports ,she will be on a salary of £180,000. She will start with Council approval in April and finish in the Autumn when a permanent appointment will be made. She has the backing of John Clancy and the Conservative and Liberal Council leaders.
