Top role for Tim Matthews


THE HIGHWAYS Agency's new boss is to be Tim Matthews, current chief executive of Guy's and St Thomas' Hospital Trust.

Matthews will join the Agency in the next few months once his replacement at the Trust is found. He will take over from Peter Nutt who has been carrying out a caretaker role since the departure of previous chief executive Lawrie Haynes last September.

As chief executive of the Trust, Matthews is responsible for 6,800 staff within two London hospitals and a budget of £320M plus a £100M Government- backed investment programme.

Once at the Agency he will oversee a substantially smaller workforce of 1,600 throughout the UK, but a much bigger £1.5bn budget to keep the nation's motorways and trunk roads working.

The five-year, extendable contract pays £120,000 a year, with a 25% performance-related bonus.
