Ealing Council has selected a former employee to become its new chief executive.

Tony Clements worked at the council up until April 2020 having joined in December 2017 as executive director for regeneration and housing. Following a restructure of the council’s leadership team, he was appointed to the role of executive director for place in March 2019.

He departed to work in senior roles at Hammersmith and Fulham Council and London Councils. He is currently a director at Neighbourly Lab a company which uses data with a view to improving connectedness within communities and improving social outcomes.

His background is in housing, regeneration, and economic development and he has experience working at senior levels in both the public and private sectors.

The full council will be asked to approve the appointment when it meets on Tuesday, 19 April and, if the decision is approved, he will officially take up the post in the summer.

Mr Clements succeeds Paul Martin, who has served as interim chief executive since February and will be stepping down on 30 June.

He said, “I am delighted to be returning to Ealing as chief executive. I know first-hand how ambitious Ealing is for its communities and neighbourhoods. I am looking forward to getting started and working closely with colleagues, members, partners, and residents to deliver the council’s exciting agenda for change.”

A council spokesperson said, “Tony has been offered the role following a rigorous national search which attracted a strong field of candidates from London and beyond.”
