Former Area Commander for Newcastle and prior to that Tamworth, Becci Bryant, takes up the new role on 19th September. As a Director she will oversee the teams responsible for; performance, quality assurance, partnership collaboration and the business transformation team, who are identifying new ways of working to achieve the £4 million savings required.

The Service has recently changed its management structure by removing two Assistant Chief Fire Officer posts and in their place introducing a team of directors, making savings of over £300,000.

Chief Fire Officer/Chief Executive, Peter Dartford said: "Becci brings with her a wealth of experience and her previous roles in local areas means that she is in touch with local needs. An important part of her role will involve ensuring we continue to run an efficient and effective service in order to maintain our standing as one of the highest performing, lowest costing authorities in the country."

Newly appointed Director of Organisational Performance, Becci Bryant said: "I’m looking forward to this new role and the opportunity to help shape the organisation to meet the challenges ahead. There are a number of challenges, from local priorities to issues on a national level, however I’m confident that we can continue to provide an excellent service to the people of Staffordshire."

Becci started her career as a firefighter at Bedfordshire and Luton Fire and Rescue Service in 1992 before moving to Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service in 2002. She joined Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service in 2005.
