Municipal Executive Search
We have extensive experience working with smaller towns and counties as well as mid-size municipalities with 150,000+ residents. On one hand reduced funding and declining populations are forcing many smaller municipalities to collaborate regionally and share critical infrastructure. On the other hand, rapidly growing satellite communities around larger urban centres face increased pressure on available resources.
Municipal elections often necessitate changes at the organizational leadership level. We have experience working with mayors and councils to identify the specific skillsets they require in their CAO and helped them recruit the best candidate to lead their municipality. In addition, we have helped CAOs recruit strong individuals to their leadership team, including Directors of Finance, Facilities, Maintenance, Parks and Recreation.Start Your Search
From end to end, we found the experience to be seamless and effective, resulting in our ability to make an offer and hire our new CAO over a tight time frame. HumanEdge took the time and steps to help clearly confirm Council’s objectives; priority skills, and qualifications we were looking for in an executive manager. HumanEdge’s extensive knowledge, professionalism and experience in municipal government was extremely helpful in the selection of our new CAO.”
