A “MEET Steve” initiative has been launched by the Cheshire West and Chester Council.
The council's £170,000 plus a year chief executive Steve Robinson says he is keen to visit people who work across the present councils in Cheshire West and Chester to find out what is done.
He moved from being chief executive of Stoke City Council to take on the job.
Mr Robinson has already been to Ellesmere Port where he called in at a primary school and visited borough council services.
In Chester, he met staff in County Hall and at the Grosvenor Museum before travelling to the Vale Royal Borough Council offices in Winsford to see services there.
Mr Robinson says that in the coming weeks and months, he will be arranging to visit as many staff as possible, at their request, as the council prepares to take over from the existing councils on April 1 next year.
It is expected to have a half billion pound budget and 15,000 people,
The council has set up a special “Meet Steve” email address to help workers get in touch and invite the chief executive along.
He said on his appointment: “I am absolutely delighted to be offered the opportunity to lead the brand new council for Cheshire West and Chester.
“This is a unique opportunity in the lifetime of anyone's career and I look forward to building on the good work that has already been achieved by the previous councils.”
Mr Robinson was previously the city director of community services in Stoke and also worked as the chief executive of a housing trust in the West Midlands apart from holding a senior management job in Liverpool.
