Derek Brown OBE


I grew up in the City, my children were educated here and am the councillor for St Mark’s and Bishopdown in Salisbury at both City and Unitary levels.

General background and experience

A former Army Officer, I left the Service in 1997 and became the Managing Director of a heavy haulage transport firm locally.

Council work

I have been a City councillor since the Council’s formation in 2009. I was the Mayor of the City in 2016/17.

My values

I am passionate about the City and keen to promote its interests by utilising the military, business and council experience I have gathered during my working life so far.
