THE positions of two retiring corporate directors at North Lanarkshire Council have been filled.

North Lanarkshire Council announced the appointments earlier this week and follows on from the retirement of one director and the impending retirement of another.

June Murray, North Lanarkshire’s former head of Legal Services will take up the position of Corporate Services executive director, vacated by John O'Hagan, immediately.

Mrs Murray joined North Lanarkshire ten years ago as a chief solicitor, and has previously worked at the Highland Regional Council, the London Borough of Hackney, Strathclyde Regional Council and even Glasgow City Council.

Former teacher Andrew Sutherland, incumbent Director of Education Services at Falkirk Council, is the second appointment. Mr Sutherland takes over as executive director of Learning and Leisure Services in September, when Christine Pollock retires.

The retirement of Mr O’Hagan and Ms Pollock was followed by a local firestorm as Abronhill residents began to suggest that both directors were stepping down as a result of the council’s proposals to rationalise Abronhill high with Cumbernauld high school. 

The suggestion was rubbished as “nonsense” by North Lanarkshire Council.

Commenting on the appointments Gavin Whitefield, chief executive of North Lanarkshire Council, said: "These are two key roles within the council’s corporate management team and I very much look forward to working with Andrew and June in their new roles."
