Lincolnshire County Council chief executive leaves after only four months in the job
Lincolnshire County Council chief executive, Keith Ireland, has left his job after only four months.
Mr Ireland, who joined the county council from Wolverhampton City Council in July, had his departure announced in a join statement to staff alongside Coun Martin Hill, leader of the council.
It read: "We are writing to let you know that Keith is leaving the council.
"Over the last few months, it has become clear that we do not share the same approach to a number of important issues that are facing the council, and, in these circumstances, we are agreed that a parting of the ways is the best way forward for both of us.
"Whilst unfortunately things have not worked out, we are united in wishing each other the very best for the future."
Coun Hill added: “I would like to take this opportunity to thank Keith for his work and the energy he has brought to it.
"I wish him every success for the future.”
