New chief executive appointed at Argyll and Bute Council
Argyll and Bute Council’s executive director for development and infrastructure services Pippa Milne has been appointed as the local authority’s new chief executive.
Ms Milne has worked in local government for 28 years, five of those in Argyll and Bute.
As executive director, she has led initiatives that will be key to developing a prosperous future for the area, most notably the Rural Growth Deal for Argyll and Bute.
Council leader Aileen Morton said: “We had a very strong pool of candidates to choose from. I would like to congratulate Pippa on securing this role, and I look forward to working with her, as chief executive, for the benefit of Argyll and Bute.”
Ms Milne will take up her new post on December 19 when Cleland Sneddon departs for South Lanarkshire Council.
She said: “Argyll and Bute is an amazing area that deserves a prosperous future and I will work tirelessly to build this.
“I understand the challenges the area faces, and the difficulties this council deals with every day. I also see the opportunities for success that are there for us to take. It will be a privilege to work for Argyll and Bute as chief executive of its council.”
