A new chief executive has been appointed to Shetland Islands Council.

Maggie Sandison takes over from Mark Boden, who retired at the end of January after five years leading the council.

Sandison has been Shetland Islands Council’s director of infrastructure services since October 2013, having worked in local government all her working life.

She joined council in 2004 and has held the posts of service manager for environmental health and executive manager for environmental health and trading standards. 

Council convener Malcolm Bell said:  “We had some very strong candidates for this position, but after a lengthy process, Maggie Sandison has been appointed. 

“Our outgoing chief executive, Mark Boden, left the council in a robust condition after his six years of outstanding service – and I’m looking forward now to the future with Maggie at the helm.”

Sandison will take up her new role immediately.
