Green Park, one of Europe’s fastest growing executive search and interim management consultancies, has placed Josie Wragg as the new Chief Executive Officer of Slough Borough Council.
Josie joins Slough Borough Council following her role as Director of Customer Services and Localities at Wokingham Borough Council.
With a 30-year career in local government, Josie has a wealth of experience and expertise in community issues having held leadership roles at Reading Borough Council and the London Boroughs of Hillingdon and Harrow.
With Slough being one of the most ethnically diverse boroughs outside of London, Green Park secured the mandate due to their proven track record of consistently attracting highly-appointable diverse candidates. Green Park has a vast amount of experience appointing C-Suite and Board level positions across the public, private and voluntary sectors, including high-profile mandates across central and local government.
Josie Wragg commented: “I am delighted to join Slough Borough Council and excited to the new challenges I face. The town is ever changing and has a lot of potential and I look forward to be a part of shaping its future. I’m delighted to take this step in my career looking to develop a strategic vision for the Borough, building a dynamic and cohesive community for both local residents and businesses.”
Andrea Trainer, Green Park partner and head of public sector search practice, commented: “Josie brings a wealth of experience and skills to Slough Borough Council and as such is extremely well placed to lead this ambitious authority in the delivery of excellent services to its residents at this pivotal time in the borough’s development.”
