Stirling Council has named Stewart Carruth as its new chief executive.

Mr Carruth, who currently serves as depute chief executive, will take up the post when Bob Jack retires in the summer.

The former Aberdeen City Council worker was appointed after a "rigorous recruitment process".

He said he was looking forward to taking on the "challenges and opportunities" ahead for the local authority.

He said: "Many challenges and opportunities lie ahead in the next five years and I am ready to help the council meet them and achieve its ambitions for Stirling."

Stirling Council leader Johanna Boyd added: "I am delighted that, following a rigorous recruitment process, Stewart will be taking up this important post.

"He has already made a significant contribution to Stirling Council and will no doubt distinguish himself in his new role. I look forward to working with him in his new role as chief executive."
