The Council's Chief Executive, Martin Reeves, heads the biggest organisation in the city, with around 10,000 workers providing more than 700 services to Coventry people.
He's responsible for making sure decisions made by councillors are carried out and that services are well run.
Martin is supported in this work by three Executive Directors, each responsible for a group of Council services. These are:
Chris West, Executive Director of Resources, heads up the team of staff who provide support across the Council. This includes finance, legal services, admin' support, IT and democratic services. Read more about the Resources Directorate.
Brian Walsh, Executive Director of People, is responsible for a wide range of services including adults and children's social care, environmental services, housing, community safety and trading standards. Read more about the People Directorate.
Martin Yardley, Executive Director of Place, leads the services delivering highways, transportation, waste and street services, planning, inward investment and regeneration. This directorate is also leading the Kickstart programme, which will deliver a new Council office building and develop a new business district for the city centre.

Jane Moore, Director of Public Health, is also a member of the Strategic Management Board. She is responsible for the public health team, which joined the Council last year and is responsible for helping Coventry become a healthier city.
