We’re saying goodbye to one of our long serving senior members of staff .
Head of Corporate and Customer Services and Council Monitoring Officer, Trevor Coxon, will retire at the end of March this year. Trevor, a qualified solicitor, began his career in 1979 with Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council in Staffordshire where he served his articles qualifying as a solicitor in 1981.
He joined Staffordshire Moorlands District Council in 1986 rising to the role of Assistant Chief Executive and Monitoring Officer before moving to his current Welsh Unitary Authority in July 2003 as Chief Legal and Administration Officer. He has held his current position of Head of Corporate and Customer Services and Monitoring Officer since April 2011.
“I have thoroughly enjoyed my career particularly these last 15 years in Wrexham, which is now my home. I am looking forward to spending time with my wife and family and indulging my passion for cycling which I have taken up since moving to North Wales,” said Trevor.
He is succeeded in the post of Head of Corporate and Customer Services by his current Deputy Monitoring Officer, Sioned Wyn Davies.
Leader of the Council, Cllr Mark Pritchard, paid tribute to Trevor:
“valuable member of staff”
“I believe I speak on behalf of all councillors when I say what a genuinely nice person Trevor is. He is a valuable a member of staff and has, on many occasions, given us all a wealth of valuable and excellent advice. He is a man of principle and intengrity and has always acted with dedication and professionalism and kept us safe.. His sense of humour is second to none, as is his commitment to Wrexham Council. Both his wisdom and his wit will be missed. I would like to thank him for all his service with us and wish him a long and happy retirement.
At his final council meeting members from all political persuasions paid further tribute to Trevor and wished him well for his retirement.
