The CoL is responsible for providing local government services for London’s financial heartland in the square mile, and as head of its Policy and Resource Committee, Snyder will oversee the policy decisions taken by the CoL. He succeeds Dame Judith Mayhew.

Upon being elected, Snyder said his work would focus on three key areas: implementing the reform of the City’s voting system; representing the City’s and the Corporation’s views to Westminster, Whitehall and Brussels; and working in neighbouring boroughs and London generally to help regeneration and economic development.

‘The voting reforms will keep the modern business City right at the heart of the Corporation’s decision-making,’ Snyder said.

‘Our work on the City’s behalf in liasing with Whitehall, Westminster and Brussels is essential, but, equally, we want to engage with the rest of London and help it sort out its problems.’

Before taking on his new role, Snyder previously chaired the Finance Committee of the Corporation since 1998.
