Chris West


I’m a freelance consultant in finance, management and leadership, and a non executive director.

Prior to February 2017, I worked for Coventry City Council where I progressed to Executive Director of Resources and a member of the Council’s Strategic Management Board over 32 years. Over my career in local government, I’ve managed a wide variety of services, including finance, legal, governance, education, libraries, property, HR, customer services and housing.

I’m highly experienced as a non-executive director and currently hold six other posts, including one at another charity.

As a qualified public finance (CIPFA) accountant with over 25 years post qualification experience I’m an experienced board member, who focuses on setting strategy, managing risk and delivering high performance.
