Phil Dolan, the former chief executive, was paid a total £569,000 during the 2009-10 financial year. Before joining South Somerset District Council in 2004, he worked at Blaby District Council.
He was 54 when he took early retirement in March last year following the restructuring of the district council, when some management posts were merged with neighbouring East Devon District Council. He is now listed as working for a consultancy called E-mpirical, which is based in Reading. The company lists work for Reading Borough Council, NHS West Midlands, Lancashire Social Services, and Slough Borough Council among its clients.
My comment: This is not retirement, it's fat cat musical chairs.
