Capita Symonds snaps up CLG housing chief Richard McCarthy

  • Comment

The top civil servant for housing at the Communities and Local Government department Richard McCarthy has announced plans to join Capita Symonds

McCarthy is currently director general for neighbourhoods but will become an executive director at Capita Symonds’ property and building services subsidiary, when he leaves in November, reported sister-title Construction News.

He has been at CLG since 2003.

Current CLG director of strategy and performance Andrew Campbell will take on McCarthy’s role until a permanent replacement is appointed.

Permanent secretary Bob Kerslake added: ‘I will be very sorry to see Richard go. He’s made a huge contribution to the work of the department over a long period, and has led on the introduction of major changes in Housing, planning and regeneration, including two substantial parliamentary bills.’
