Angus Campbell, Leader of the council and chair of the selection panel, said: “I am delighted that Debbie Ward is to be our next Chief Executive at Dorset County Council.
"Debbie came to us relatively recently to take over as Director for Adult and Community Services and has made huge strides in that area in times of increasing budgetary constraint.
