Brent Council has announced the appointment of two new directors.

Althea Loderick will replace Stephen Hughes as the borough’s strategic director for resources and Amar Dave is Lorraine Langham’s successor for the role of director for regeneration and environment.

Ms Loderick will join the council from Waltham Forest where she is currently the chief operating officer and was previously the director of HR and transformation.

She has previously worked as a service director in a national policing role where she led the modernisation of the workforce strategy which affected almost 250,000 employees.

In 2013 she came 11th in a list of the 26 most influential people in HR by Human Resources magazine.

Mr Dean has been the chief executive at Rochford District Council in Essex since October 2013.

He previously worked as the corporate director of environment, culture and transport at Reading Borough Council and has extensive experience of managing frontline council services including highways, transport, planning, environmental, housing, arts and heritage.
