    In my harsh view, she should have been sacked long ago. Suffolk Libraries have been under-performing.

    They knew the deal - the reason SCC offloaded the day-to-day running to the IPS was to implement cuts - they had failed to make the library service more attractive to the younger generation, failed to keep up with traditional paper book stocks and the enterprise project on the top floor was a massive unmitigated disaster. Someone has to take responsibility and for most organisations it is the CEO.

    No doubt she would be an asset to Suffolk Libraries (director/trustee etc) but CEO was punching above her weight. Regardless of the excuses given, relatively early to retire, I am sure Suffolk County Council (who still has the power behind the IPS organisation) was pushing her out. 5 year review... it is about right.
