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.

Strategic director for change and corporate services Angela Probert will continue in her role as acting chief executive until Ms Manzie’s appointment is ratified on April 4.
