Our Strategic Management Board
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.
- 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.
