Anglesey Council’s economic chief has been appointed as the authority’s new deputy chief executive.
A behind closed doors meeting on Tuesday rubber-stamped the appointment of Dylan Williams who will assist the chief executive, Annwen Morgan, who only took up her new post earlier this month.
Having began his career with the authority as a trainee in the planning and economic development service in 1996, he went on to become the head of service in 2010.
Following a senior management restructure in 2016, the father of two was appointed as head of regulation and economic development.
Born and bred in Newborough,  he was educated at Ysgol Gyfun Llangefni and went on to gain his BA in Business and Social Administration from Coleg Normal, Bangor, and an MSc in Environmental Planning and MA in Change Management, both with Liverpool’s John Moores University.
He now lives in Llanfairpwll with wife, Awen, and their two young daughters.
He said: “I look forward to working with colleagues and elected members to ensure we continue to deliver the best possible services to residents and local communities, despite diminishing budgets.
“The new role will also provide significant challenges as I focus on key transformation programmes, such as place shaping and school modernisation as well as wider partnership initiatives, both on a regional and national level.”
“I’m eager to begin the work and will do my utmost for the people of Anglesey.”
Welcoming the appointment, the leader of the council said he would play “a key role” in driving forward positive change as they look to create “a healthy, thriving and prosperous Anglesey.”
Cllr Llinos Medi added: “I would like to congratulate Dylan on his appointment. He will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in local government to the role and I look forward to working with him.”
“Our Council Plan 2017-22 includes many ambitious and important targets as we look to support individuals, families and local communities.
“At its core, is our desire to create the right conditions for everyone to fulfil their long-term potential; to support the vulnerable and keep them safe and healthy; and work in partnership with communities to ensure that they can meet future challenges.” ‌​‌‌​​​‌‍‌​‌​‌​​​
