2023 Shortlisted Nominee
Chief Executive of The Year Award
Since Stuart Love became Chief Executive at Westminster City Council, he has displayed outstanding leadership, innovation and commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion. Stuart is driven by tackling the lack of representation across Local Government and the wider public and private sectors. He has focused on transforming Westminster into a thriving, diverse and inclusive organisation, often challenging and disrupting processes and policies to introduce new programmes that drive this agenda. This includes, the implementation of several enterprising training programmes, transformation of recruitment practices, and the commitment to closing the gender and ethnicity pay gaps by 2025. His focus is always on the culture of the organisation, to ensure positive changes are embedded. As a result, the reputation of Westminster has successfully changed, staff engagement has increased exponentially over the last five years and our resident satisfaction has reached record levels.
