SUBJECT: Discuss Recruitment for General Manager Position and Provide Direction concerning Involvement of Board Operations Committee and Authorization of Request for Proposals for Executive Recruiting Services
Executive Summary: The purpose of this report is to the process and steps for recruiting the next SAM General Manager.
Fiscal Impact: The fiscal impact will depend upon the process determined by the Board of Directors.
Strategic Plan Compliance: The recommendation complies with the SAM Strategic Plan’s Goal 4: “A well-organized, motivated, and well-trained staff with an effective Board of Directors are the most important keys to success for SAM.”
Background and Discussion/Report: On June 10, 2019 the Board recognized the assignment of Kishen Prathivadi, Engineering & Construction Contracts Manager, as Acting General Manager until such time as the Board appoints an Interim General Manager or a new General Manager.
Historically, the Board has created an ad hoc committee to conduct the recruitment and appointed directors to serve on the committee. However, given that the Board Operations Committee is a standing committee, Staff recommends that this committee oversee the recruitment process.
The committee will likely utilize an executive recruiting firm to conduct a formal search with input from the committee.
