Katherine Fairclough has been appointed as the chief executive of the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority (LCRCA).
Fairclough joins from Cumbria County Council where she was chief executive since 2017. She will replace current chief executive Frank Rogers in early summer, following his retirement.
At LCRCA she will be responsible for all functions such as transport, environment, investment and business growth, housing and homelessness, employment and skills, culture, fairness and inclusion.
Fairclough’s top priority will be taking forward the combined authority's work on economic recovery from Covid-19, where she will work with the city region’s six local authorities and partners in business and civic institutions.
