The Dame hears staff at Hornton St were throwing their hats in the air and cracking open bottles of champagne at the news the very popular Nicholas Holgate was stepping up to replace the less than popular, Mr Myers. Mr Myers was universally disliked and was inextricably meshed with the ludicrous Pooter.I am pleased to tell you that subsequently an internal process was run to appoint someone to step into the role and Nicholas Holgate, Town Clerk and Director of Finance RBKC has now been offered this opportunity and has accepted. He will retain his formal finance role for RBKC.This appointment will take effect from November."
Nicholas Holgate is a very different kettle of fish.
Whereas Mr Myers was a ambitious social worker made good, Mr Holgate was a top flight civil servant and previously Director of Welfare Reform at the Treasury.
Nicholas lives in the Borough and said on his appointment as Finance Director,“It will be great to contribute the work of such a vibrant organisation; and as I live in Olympia, the borough affects my quality of life outside the office too.”
The Two Nicks will make a great team.
