The Mayor of Maidstone is Cllr Malcolm Greer.
Malcolm was born in Frindsbury, Rochester, and lived with his parents in Chatham. Malcolm married Brenda in 1962 and they have two sons, Paul and Jonathan, both of whom attended Vinters School. They decided to build their own house in Walderslade (part of Maidstone Borough) and moved into it in 1966. In 1999 they moved into a second house which they built in the garden of their first house. Currently they are building their final house, an ecohouse, in Bredhurst (also in Maidstone Borough).
Malcolm was an electrical apprentice in Chatham Dockyard and upon completion of his apprenticeship became established and managed the electronics diagnosticians in the Radio Centre of the Dockyard. When the Dockyard closed in 1984, Malcolm became Stadium Manager of Gillingham Football Club.
He was also responsible for the upgrading of Priestfield Stadium following the Bradford disaster and obtaining the ground safety certificate for stadium, making Gillingham one of the first clubs in the country to do this. Malcolm instigated the building of a sports centre which he also managed and then went on to work as a consultant on sports ground development and safety, advising football clubs up and down the country.
Malcolm was elected to the council as a representative for Boxley Ward in 2003. He has served on several committees including Planning, and was Cabinet Member for Economic and Commercial Development until 2015. In this period he oversaw the refurbishment of Maidstone High Street and chaired the Development Committee for the KIMS Hospital until its completion. He was also actively involved in the refurbishment of Maidstone Museum, drove the rebuild of a physio centre for the Blackthorn Trust, and supported G Forces, Towergate, Tesla Charging Station and KIMS.
Malcolm’s hobbies include music, photography and his beloved car.
