Napa County CEO Nancy Watt announces resignation Tuesday


(NAPA, California) Napa County CEO Nancy Watt announced Tuesday that she will be leaving her position this summer.

Watt, who began her career with Napa County in 1997 as a management analyst, was appointed chief executive 12 years ago. Prior to the county, she worked for the City of Napa for many years and has served in various local government capacities on both coasts for nearly three decades.

“It’s been my privilege and honor to work with the Board of Supervisors (BOS) and the 1,500-member county team to serve our community,” Watt said.

BOS Chair Alfredo Pedroza praised Watt for a career of successful leadership.

“Nancy has lead the county with the highest ethical standards and fiscal stewardship,” he said.

The BOS is expected to discuss the process to fill the position at next week’s meeting.

Watt plans to take some time off to enjoy her family before pursuing other interests and opportunities. She plans to continue to make Napa her home.

The Board of Supervisors and staff of Napa County are dedicated to preserving and sustaining Napa County for present and future generations as a community with generous open space, a thriving agricultural industry and a quality human and natural environment.
