NAPA, CA – Napa County is seeking public input on the search for the next County Executive Officer (CEO) through a public survey. The survey invites community members to identify priority issues for the county, as well as the career experience and personal attributes most important for the next CEO to possess. Information gathered will be used to supplement other considerations in determining the top position of the county.
The CEO oversees the activities of the County Executive Office and is appointed by the Board of Supervisors. The CEO is responsible for the administration of all county services, activities and day-to- day management and coordination of county operations. The position requires leadership, initiative, judgement, discretion, and the ability to make independent decisions within established policies and procedures set forth by the Board of Supervisors and federal, state and local laws, ordinances and regulations.
“Selecting the best candidate to lead Napa County is a high priority for the Board,” said Board Chair Belia Ramos. “It’s important for us to find the right person, looking for a good fit and strategic leadership to guide the county for future success. We are being purposeful and methodical, doing the research and outreach to arrive at the right decision.”
