Construction News Image
Glasgow City Council has appointed a new Chief Executive.

Susanne Millar, who is currently Chief Officer of Glasgow's Health and Social Care Partnership, will replace Annemarie O'Donnell, who announced earlier this year that she was stepping down from the biggest local government role in Scotland after more than 30 years working for the city.

It is anticipated Susanne will start to take on some of the duties of Chief Executive almost immediately, with a full handover complete before Annemarie retires in early May.

Susanne has spent her entire career working in social work and social care services in the city, then moving into work in integrated health and social work service. She started her career in residential care for older people, then working with vulnerable children and families.

After holding strategy and planning roles, she became the Head of Children's Services and Head of Homelessness and Asylum Services.

In 2012, Susanne became Assistant Director of Social Work Services in Glasgow, then Chief Officer for Planning, Strategy & Commissioning for the newly-formed Glasgow City HSCP, promoted in 2019 to the Chief Officer role within the HSCP, leading the team of 13,000 staff working across health and social work.

She said: "I'm both delighted and really honoured to take on this role.

"I've known and worked closely with Annemarie for many years, and I think everybody understands she's going to leave very big boots to fill - but I can't wait to get started.

"As a Glaswegian, I've been privileged to spend my whole career working for the people and the communities of my hometown.

"I've enjoyed working with a really dedicated team at the Health and Social Care Partnership and I couldn't be more proud of them and the job they do for the city, day in and day out. "
