Barry Quirk has today offered to continue as the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s Chief Executive, an offer that has been accepted by Council Leader, Cllr Elizabeth Campbell.
Dr Quirk said: “There is no more urgent public service priority in London than helping the hundreds of families impacted by the tragedy of the Grenfell Tower fire.
“To that end I have advised the Leader of the Council, Elizabeth Campbell, that I am very willing to continue as the Council’s Chief Executive. I am pleased that she has agreed to my suggestion.”
Council Leader Elizabeth Campbell said: “Grenfell survivors have a long and difficult journey ahead as they start to rebuild their lives. I welcome the appointment of Barry Quirk as part of the Council’s commitment to support Grenfell survivors and the wider community of North Kensington.
