Bev Smith - Her career and the latest developments at the District Council

Bev took up the post of Chief Executive at North West Leicestershire District Council in June 2017.

She was previously Chief Executive at Mansfield District Council in Nottinghamshire, a role she has held since August 2015 from her initial position as Director of Regeneration, which she held for six years. Bev's earlier career history includes management roles at Boston Borough Council and South Holland District Council, and seven years in the police, leaving as a Detective Constable in 1996.

Having worked in local government for more than 20 years, Bev's experience of regeneration projects and leading an authority focussed on excellent performance has transferred well to NWLDC. The authority has a strong growth and regeneration agenda whilst prioritising environmental projects and support for the National Forest.
