Walsh Appointed CAO
Regional Council has appointed Marie Walsh as the CBRM’s new chief administrative officer.
Walsh has served as the Municipality’s Chief Financial Officer since 2014, and has been acting CAO since Michael Merritt left his former position to take a CAO job in Olds, Alberta.
Walsh is a certified general accountant and joined the Municipality as the Director of Finance in 2007.
Council decided to look outside its staff when Merritt was hired in 2014, but the job was posted internally this time.
Walsh’s appointment is effective immediately.
It pays an annual salary of $194,750.
