Following an extensive search and recommendation to Headquarters, it give me great pleasure to announce Darren Lodge as the new County Commissioner for Greater London South.
Darren is known to most people within the County and is currently DCC Programme. Darren takes over from Paul O'Brien on Wednesday 12th July 2017 at the County's Annual General Meeting and will be invested as the County Commissioner.
I would like to thank the Search Group for their hard work and support and in closing recognise the outstanding contribution Paul has made as the CC leading South London through change, development and growth. Well done Paul!
I'm sure you will all join me in welcoming Darren into role and thanking Paul for his dedication and hard work.
