Jo Miller holds one of the most high-profile local government jobs in the UK, with an outstanding track record for motivating people, creating solutions and brokering agreements in major housing, economic regeneration and capital investment schemes. As Chief Executive at Doncaster Council, Jo is recognised as having brought exceptional growth and optimism to a previously economically depressed town. The Local Government Chronicle said Doncaster had been “dragged up from the depths of despair to something to be proud of.”
Landmark projects with a total investment of £2 billion have boosted economic performance, putting Doncaster in the UK’s top ten for growth. Jo is the elected President of the Society of Local Authority Chief Executives and in 2017 the Local Government Chronicle named her the third most influential person in local government.
