Government - Accountant to be agency head

The government has chosen an accountant to head up its fledgling regeneration agency for England, following the merger of English Partnerships and the Commission for the New Towns.

Paula Hay-Plumb, who qualified with the English ICA in 1984, was formerly managing director (operations) for English Partnerships. The government agency is responsible for regenerating derelict land and buildings in partnership with public, private and voluntary-sector organisations.

The move represents a change in managerial direction for the agency: outgoing chief executive Anthony Dunnett is a banker by profession.

CNT was established in 1961 to manage government assets in 21 English new towns. It also has responsibility for the assets and liabilities of the eight remaining Urban Development Corporations.

Hay-Plumb previously held a number of positions in the private sector, most recently with Olympia and York Canary Wharf Ltd, where she was part of the restructuring team.
