The New Year will start with a fresh face in Peterborough, with Matt Gladstone joining the council towards the end of January 2022. Matt will replace Gillian Beasley, the current Chief Executive, with Gillian set to retire.
While this is a new opportunity for Matt, he is relatively well-known in the local area, and he has spent four years with the Audit Committee. Matt currently holds the post of Executive Director for Place at Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council.
Matt said: “I am really proud to have been given this opportunity as chief executive to lead Peterborough City Council. The city has huge potential and is already one of the fastest growing cities in the country. It has strong ambitions, including a new university in 2022. I am excited to be working with the team in Peterborough and am looking forward to helping guide the council in strengthening its financial resilience and in delivering services for the people and businesses of Peterborough.”
2022 offers fresh opportunities in Peterborough
This sort of talk will be welcomed by most people in and around Peterborough, and there is a need to drive more change and progress in the local area. The arrival of the new University is a significant moment, and one that will offer significant opportunities for landlords.

Councillor Wayne Fitzgerald, Leader of Peterborough City Council, said: “We are delighted to be able to announce that Matt will join the council early next year as Chief Executive. He joins us at a time of great challenge yet enormous opportunity to take the council forward into the future where we will continue to grow and prosper. In his career Matt has been responsible for a considerable breadth of services, providing him with a sound appreciation of the workings of local and central government. His time with the Audit Office has also given him a very good understanding of finance, which of course will put him in good stead to lead our drive towards financial sustainability which is our number one goal.”
