Richard Simpson has been appointed permanent Strategic Director of Resources at Sutton Council.

He joined the council on an interim basis earlier this year from the London Borough of Croydon, where he performed a similar role to his current one. 

Leader of the Council, Councillor Ruth Dombey, said: “I have been impressed by Richard’s drive as well as his obvious knowledge and experience since he joined Sutton. He has thoroughly embraced our ambitious plans and it is a testament to his vision and hard work that our recommendation to appoint him on a permanent basis was agreed unanimously.

“Sutton is already a great place to live, work and raise a family and I am confident we have the right team to realise the exciting developments before us, including the completion of the world-class London Cancer Hub in the borough.”

Sutton Council’s Senior Officer Appointments Committee was unanimous in its decision to appoint Richard on a permanent basis.
