Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority boss resigns just months after taking on the job
The chief executive for Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority has resigned only months after stepping into the role.
There have been rumours almost since the start of her tenure in the £203,000 job of problems between her and the combined authority's mayor, Dr Nik Johnson.
However, a spokesperson for the authority today (Thursday) issued a bland statement confirming the resignation adding they could not comment on "staff related matters".
He said: "We can confirm that the chief executive has given notice of her resignation from the authority. We will commence the process of finding a suitable replacement in due course.
"We are not able to comment further on ongoing staff-related matters."
Ms Milner was appointed to the job in July last year and took up the position in the autumn.
She was previously with the Education and Skills Funding Agency.
At the time of her appointment Ms Milner said: “I am delighted and honoured to have been appointed into this role. The area covered by the combined authority is an extraordinary one, rich in history, talent, innovation and opportunity and I am excited to join an organisation that has such an important remit in respect of making our area the very best place to live, work, invest and learn.”
While Mayor Dr Johnson described her as an "outstanding, experienced individual".
