A former Chief Executive of Buckinghamshire County Council has been appointed as a Deputy Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire.
The appointment of Chris Williams (pictured above) as a Deputy Lieutenant reflects the positive contribution Chris made to Buckinghamshire in his time with and at the helm of the County Council.
Deputy Lieutenants are appointed by the Lord Lieutenant, at their discretion, subject only to Her Majesty The Queen not disapproving of the granting of the commission. Their role is to assist the Lord Lieutenant in supporting voluntary and community activities in Buckinghamshire. They also participate in civic and social activities including citizenship ceremonies and armed forces events.
Speaking about the appointment, Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher, HM Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire said: ‘I am delighted to appoint Chris Williams as a Deputy Lieutenant for Buckinghamshire.
As a hard working and highly respected head of the county council for 16 years, Chris has devoted a large part of his working life to improving the lives of local residents and communities.
