Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Tony Reeves has resigned as chief executive at Bradford Council Tony Reeves has resigned as chief executive at Bradford Council

Tony Reeves has today resigned as chief executive at Bradford Council after eight years in the post.

He has quit his City Hall role to work as a partner in professional services network Deloitte public sector advisory practice from January next year.

Mr Reeves announced his resignation after speaking at the Intelligent Cities conference at Valley Parade this morning.

He said: “During my six month notice period at Bradford Council I will continue working hard with partners to ensure Bradford, city and district, develops and thrives.

"My eight years of working in Bradford have been stimulating, challenging and extremely enjoyable.

“Working for Bradford Council isn’t about individual people however, it’s about this great and very special place and all the people who live and work here.

"Councillors, staff at the council, and partner organisations across the public, private, voluntary and community sectors, will continue to make sure that the regeneration of, and investment in, our city and district continues at pace.

"The hard work and increasing confidence of businesses, local people and organisations in Bradford is shaping a shared, bright future, making our city and district a better place for everyone - now and for generations to come.”

It's our tax money that goes to pay his wages. Thats what it has to do with me and others. He refused to point blank take a pay cut at a time he was overseeing the redundancies of thousands of council workers. So before you stick up for him do a little research on him.

Its been well documented his salary, paid for by the taxpayer, is around £180k, and he has seen numerous pay rises and bonuses. During most of his tenure, he has overseen numerous failures and delayed projects, and has kept a very low profile, seemingly never having to answer any criticism. One example was why he was getting something like a £6,000 increase at a time when many low-paid staff were having to face cuts.

For a salary like that you expect much more than what he has done in his tenure. The fact that things are starting to happen in Bradford after years of decline or put on hold does not excuse the other years.

With work we often have councillors in the office. I actually met Tony Reeves and Barra Mac at the same time. I posted on here that both them came across as very arrogant and obnoxious with a deluded outlook on how Bradford is, in stark contrast to Tom Riordan, Reeves' equivalent at Leeds who when he has been in our office comes across as the polar opposite. Riordan is so concerned with how he is perceived in terms of spending money he has slept on sofas when travelling to keep costs down. I wonder if Reeves did the same on his annual jolly to Cannes for MIPIM.

I'd gladly do the job for nothing, and you certainly wouldn't see an viable business closed down and their property bought to site a City Centre pool which will be too small and in completely the wrong location BEFORE the public consultation over said pool has even taken place. No, we'd be building on the ex Royal Mail site at Forster Square, the place would have some of the best facilities in the whole of the UK and people might actually want to use it. We also wouldn't be trying to stick an office block in the middle of City Park, opposite another empty office building, not when the City is crying out for Galleries, exhibition spaces and fine restaurant space.

But then what do I know, I only want what is best for my City, not what is best for City Hall.

There was no shopping center 8 years ago, there still isn't one now.
There was no Odeon development 8 years ago, there still isn't one now.
Number of empty shops has gone up, education standards have gone down, drug taking **** watching councillors wrapped in cotton wool, no department stores in the city, a nightlife that has disappeared, crime up, bus lane camera and ticket wardens everywhere except where laws are flouted on a daily basis.

A good job. Who looked at the City for you? Stevie Wonder.

You should know what a failure is,look in the mirror.moaning again,what's it got to do with you how much the guy gets?jealousy is a terrible thing.
Its been well documented his salary, paid for by the taxpayer, is around £180k, and he has seen numerous pay rises and bonuses. During most of his tenure, he has overseen numerous failures and delayed projects, and has kept a very low profile, seemingly never having to answer any criticism. One example was why he was getting something like a £6,000 increase at a time when many low-paid staff were having to face cuts.

For a salary like that you expect much more than what he has done in his tenure. The fact that things are starting to happen in Bradford after years of decline or put on hold does not excuse the other years.
Paid £36k more then David Cameron to be exact..

Lets await BCFC and JAtkinsons comments about how great he has been for the city

Sadly knowing Bradford Council and its "old pals acts" that go on, they will already have someone lined up for the post,and how about a few more of the grossly overpaid and non-productive senior officers following him out of the door.

I'm crushed.

Westfield is being built, City Park has been a tremendous success, much to my surprise bringing in millions of folk into Bradford City Centre. The Odeon building is hopefully in the early process of becoming a world class music venue. Little Germany is becoming a place of commerce again. There are various other schemes in the pipeline including the Tunnels and the Kirkgate Square. There is a brand spanking new Bradford College building in the Hockney. Bradford is buzzing at the minute. Like all major UK cities Bradford has problems, but to simply look at Bradford today and not acknowledge the progress that has taken place especially this year which I'm sure Mr Reeves has played some part in, is quite simply ludicrous.

Get it right Greeny. Westfield pulled out and Meyer Bergman took on the project and made it 25% of a smaller project and it is called the Broadway Shopping Centre. You should know that. Without the Germans coming in it would sti be a hole in the ground so stop bigging up Reeves.

My Reeves stuff goes back to 2009 and he wouldn't deal with a matter he should have in my eyes. It was passed on to his PA. In those fays he was on £175k and that seemed like a huge waste of money. The Leeds CEO was on £185k and the Kirklees counterpart was on £165k.
To me those wages are well over the scale but nothing sticks to Teflon Tony.
