Bond started the role this week, taking responsibility for eight people and reporting into head of service Angie Astley. She was previously corporate comms manager at Telford and Wrekin Council in the West Midlands.
Bond replaces Andrew Hillier. A spokesman for Aberdeenshire Council would not comment on whether Hillier had a new position arranged. The authority has an annual net budget of around £400m.
Telford is to shortly start the hunt for Bond’s replacement. Acting in her role is her deputy Deborah Harries, overseeing a 25-strong team.
