In order to communicate the challenges across the public, private and not-for-profit sectors, WIG has launched a special series of webinars to hear from key voices across the sectors. In this webinar you will hear from Martin Esom, Chief Executive at the London Borough of Waltham Forest. He will provide a perspective on the likely impacts and implications on local government.

    Chief Executive

    London Borough of Waltham Forest

    Martin Esom became Chief Executive of Waltham Forest Council in October 2010, having previously been Deputy Chief Executive and Executive Director for Environment and Regeneration.

    He sits on the Board of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) as a Non-Executive Director and also Chairs the Board’s Audit and Risk Committee.

    During his time at the Council, Martin has led a number of community safety initiatives, including Waltham Forest’s award winning gang prevention programme and a multi-agency Child Sexual Exploitation Strategy alongside partners in police, health and other key services.  Between 2012 and 2018 he was Chair of the London Prevent Board which drives critical work in relation to counter-terrorism and anti-radicalisation across the capital and was also a Member of the London Contest Board during that period. Martin led the Council’s successful bid to become both London’s first London Borough of Culture and then MJ Local Authority of the Year in 2019. He has driven the transformation of the country’s only museum dedicated to the artist and writer William Morris, and taken forward the regeneration of the borough, focussed on returning streets to walking and cycling, rejuvenating town centres and high streets and transforming the leisure offer to residents. Most recently, and in direct response to Covid-19, Martin took on the role of London Local Authority Strategic Co-ordination Chief Executive (London Gold) responsible for coordinating activity across London boroughs and representing local government on the London Strategic Coordination Group (SCG).
