The City of Cornwall is pleased to announce the appointment of Maureen Adams as the new Chief Administrative Officer for the City of Cornwall, effective Monday, May 2nd.
The announcement concludes the search for the replacement of outgoing CAO Norm Levac, who is retiring on Friday, April 29th following a lengthy and productive career with the City of Cornwall.
“City Council conducted a thorough search for the replacement of Mr. Levac and we are pleased with the result,” said Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy. “Maureen Adams is the perfect fit for continuing many of the progressive initiatives currently underway and we are pleased that she has accepted this position.”
Mrs. Adams is no stranger to the City of Cornwall. For the past eight years, she has served as the General Manager and Chief Financial Officer for the City, a key position that involves overseeing the annual City Budget process and ensuring the City maintains a strong financial position. In this capacity, Mrs. Adams oversaw financial plans for key infrastructure projects such as the Benson Centre and Wastewater Treatment Plant upgrade.
Her leadership experience in the municipal sector is complemented by a 20-year private sector career in both the banking and manufacturing industries.
“I am really excited by this new opportunity to work alongside the Mayor and Council and build Cornwall into an even greater City,” said Mrs. Adams. “We have a lot of great attributes and I’m looking forward to working with Council, City staff and community partners to build on our strengths.”
