That Inquirer understands that Bromley-Derry will temporarily serve on the Labor Run Council, which has been hit by a number of recent departures.

Bromley-Derry will remain a McLaren employee and will return to the business full time next year after serving with Sandwell Council.
Kevin Taylor, Group Chairman of McLaren Construction, said, “Over the past two years, McLaren has made great strides in the public sector. Kim has been instrumental in this effort as we continue to be nominated for and delivering outstanding projects for clients such as Be First Barking & Dagenham, Basildon Council, The London Borough of Hackney and numerous others that we are currently partnering with the Early Stages on .
“In order for us to continue this good work, it is important for us to support the local authorities in a unique way wherever we can. Kim’s temporary employment with Sandwell is a great example of this approach as we grow our business through public sector partnerships in the near future and beyond.”
Councilor Rajbir Singh, Chair of the Sandwell Council, said: “I would like to welcome Kim as the new Interim Chief Executive. His experience, understanding, and insights will be invaluable to us in realizing our 2030 Vision for Sandwell employees and businesses, and I thank McLaren for approving Kim for this role. “
