Thank you from our new Chief Executive - Chris Naylor

Chief Executive's update – Chris Naylor

18 May 2020


I’m Chris Naylor, Birmingham’s new CEO!

Today is my first day and I didn’t want it to pass without contacting you all to introduce myself and also to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has made me feel so welcome in the weeks running up to my joining. I’ve worked in lots of places, and this has been a really great start.

From Inderjit in IT who sorted my kit, to Wayne from the civic catering service who took me to meet the teams of staff and volunteers at the Wholesale Market as they daily pack and distribute thousands of food parcels to shielded residents. Thank you.

Thanks also to Lee Carnell one of the city’s street cleansers. Lee has been with the council for 18 years. I had the privilege of spending an hour and a half with him and his supervisor Reece last week. They showed me their patch, introduced me to some of the city centre characters and colleagues from other partners and businesses. We almost pulled off a socially distanced selfie!
