The County of Paintearth No. 18 appoints a
NEW Chief Administrative Officer

July 16, 2018

Council is pleased to announce that Mr. Michael Simpson has been selected as the new Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) for the County of Paintearth.  He will be assuming his new role and responsibilities on August 13, 2018.

This is the key leadership position within the County administration and we are fortunate, along with the assistance of DCG Executive Search Services Ltd., to have attracted strong candidates.

Having spent several years in the area during high school, Mr. Simpson brings a solid background in both the private and public sectors, as well as the intentions of living and raising his children within the County.  Coupled with his passion and desire to excel as an administrator, he is currently pursuing his Certified Local Government Managers (CLGM) designation.  With experience working not only locally, but regionally, Council feels that Mr. Simpson will be a strong asset to administration, the County, and the region.

We wish to thank Mrs. Brenda Hepp and the County staff for all the hard work they have put in over the last several months while the search for a new CAO was conducted following the departure of long serving CAO, Ms. Tarolyn Aaserud.  We are excited about continuing the momentum and we feel that with the addition of Mr. Simpson to the existing senior leadership team, the County of Paintearth will continue to be a municipality of choice.

Please join us in welcoming Mr. Michael Simpson and his family to the community.  We are confident that the County of Paintearth will continue with a progressive administration.
