New �100k interim chief executive formally appointed by NHDC
A SALARY of over �100,000 was rubber stamped for the interim chief executive of a district council last night (Thursday).
David Scholes will take the helm of North Herts District Council from February 27 for a period of between 6-12 months, with a review after half a year.
This will allow a handover to take place between Mr Scholes and the outgoing John Campbell.
Councillors at the Employment Committee unanimously approved his appointment at the district council’s Letchworth GC headquarters.
Mr Scholes, the former housing and planning boss at the authority, will receive �102,897 a year and is entitled to a �4,000 car allowance a month, an annual pay cut of �11,000 from his predecessor.
