CITY OF WINNIPEG SEARCHING FOR A NEW CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER
WINNIPEG – Today, a recruitment committee was formed as the City of Winnipeg begins its search for the position of Chief Financial Officer (CFO).
“With the news that Mike Ruta, our interim Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), will continue on until a new CAO is selected and for any transition period, the City of Winnipeg will be in a strong position while making a selection,” said Mayor Brian Bowman. “Since Mr. Ruta has advised he will not return to his former role of CFO, it means we will need to begin the search for a replacement as soon as possible. I look forward to the recruitment committee’s first meeting and the subsequent job posting that will officially begin the search for a new CFO.”
A CFO recruitment committee has been formed that consists of Councillors Gillingham, Gilroy and Chambers. Since there is a dual reporting relationship both to EPC and to the CAO, Mike Ruta will also serve as part of the recruitment committee.
Once the recruitment committee has selected a candidate, Council approval will be required to confirm the selection. It is expected the recruitment committee will have its first meeting to finalize the job posting in the coming weeks
