On being appointed, he said: "It’s a great honour to be selected as Cyngor Gwynedd's new Head of Corporate Support.

"Since I joined Gwynedd County Council and then Cyngor Gwynedd it has been a pleasure to work with such dedicated and professional staff.

"I am very much looking forward to building on the good work that is already happening within the Corporate Support Department, and to lead the talented team of officers we have in order to continue to put the people of Gwynedd at the centre of everything we do."

Councillor Menna Jones, Cyngor Gwynedd’s Cabinet Member for Corporate Support, said:

"From customer care to support services, there is a wide range of services within the Corporate Support Department which play an important role in supporting the Council's work. Ian has extensive experience in this field and I look forward to working with him.

"We thank Geraint Owen very much for all his work over the years as Head of the Corporate Support Department and are looking forward to continue working with him in his new role as one of the Council's Corporate Directors."
