March 24, 2016   ·   0 Comments

After spending a quarter century as Mono’s planning director, Mark Early took over the reins as the town’s Chief Administrative Officer and Clerk Wednesday.

His appointment to succeed longtime CAO Keith McNenly was announced by Mono Mayor Laura Ryan and the town’s Council on Tuesday.

After 42 years on the job, Mr. McNenly last fall announced plans to retire on Feb. 29, but stayed on until Council had picked a successor.

Mr. Early has been with the Town for over 25 years and had been Deputy CAO/Clerk in addition to Director of Planning.

“These are big shoes to fill as CAO/Clerk,” he said, “but I have had great training here at the Town and am looking forward to learning more and working with all Mono staff, including a talented senior management team, in continuing to deliver inspiring services to the Town.”

“Even though we have benefitted from a program of succession planning at the Town, Council believed it was important to conduct an extensive search process, with independent support, that attracted applications from across the country,” said Mayor Ryan. “We were hopeful and ultimately pleased to be able to confirm that the best applicant was right here in Mono.”
