Search for CAO narrows

The search for a new Chief Administrative Officer to take over the helm of the Town of Rimbey was narrowed down to final candidates

The search for a new Chief Administrative Officer to take over the helm of the Town of Rimbey was narrowed down to final candidates last week.

Mayor Rick Pankiw said 37 candidates applied for the position and three were shortlisted.

Interviews were held last Wednesday.

The HR Group from Sherwood Park was hired as headhunters to help find a suitable candidate for the position.

Although it cost the town $12,000 plus expenses to hire the company, Pankiw said it was money well spent.

“We tried to do it ourselves and ended up at a stalemate. Going through headhunters cleared any muddy waters and gave us the chance to move on.”

The mayor expects to make an announcement as to whom the new CAO will be later this month.
