Joint Chief Executive,
North East Lincolnshire Council
Rob Walsh was appointed Chief Executive of North East Lincolnshire Council on 1 January 2014, having been with the local authority since it formed in 1996.
Following a decision taken by the Council and CCG in 2017 whereby the two would take their much advanced health and social care partnership even further, the Council/CCG “Union” was formed. On 1st August 2017 Rob was duly appointed Chief Executive of North East Lincolnshire Council and North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group.
In his role as Chief Executive Rob has been keen to promote the profile of the council and the borough with a view to creating the right conditions for investment, economic growth and community resilience, symbolised by the recent announcement by the Government of a Town Deal for Grimsby.
Rob is a keen advocate of system integration, partnership working and a learning culture, recognising that an area like North East Lincolnshire can and will thrive if there is a clear vision and common purpose across all sectors – public, private, voluntary and community.
