Podcast 10: Martin Yardley, Deputy Chief Executive, Coventry City Council
Martin Yardley is the Deputy Chief Executive of Coventry City Council and is Head of Place which covers anything from bins and potholes to strategic regeneration of the city. In the 9 years Martin has been in post, Coventry has seen massive change and business growth, and is unrecognisable from the concrete jungle that it once was. It may be down to him but he makes it clear that it’s a team effort.
Martin is a bundle of energy and role models having passion for your work. Talking to him, I found myself wanting to live in Coventry and I think that’s a great testament to his ability to influence people, from investors to the local people, local businesses as well as encouraging regeneration and investment from outside of the city.
