Chris Hall, Assistant Director - Operational Delivery

Chris HallChris Hall, Assistant Director - Operational Delivery started working with Taunton Deane Borough Council in 2006 as a Management Trainee in the Highways and Cleansing service. Throughout the years his roles have changed to cover all of the DLO services as well as other delivery services.
