City begins official search for permanent Chief Administrative Officer

CAO Search Post

At their last regular meeting, Council awarded a contract to Ravenhill Group Inc., an executive search company, to find a permanent Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) for the City of Chestermere.

“As Council’s one staff member, we recognize that finding a new CAO with the right combination of experience and skill is paramount to the success of the City as we move forward,” says Mayor Marshall Chalmers.

Chestermere has been without a permanent CAO since April 2017. Tracy Buteau, Director of Corporate Services, served a six month term as Interim CAO. Upon completion of her term and recognizing that securing a permanent CAO could take an extensive period of time, Council decided to find an Interim CAO and allow Ms. Buteau to return to her regular position to help alleviate significant staffing constraints.

On Monday, December 11, Pat Vincent started as the Interim Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) for the City of Chestermere.

“Mr. Vincent comes to us with a wealth of knowledge as a municipal administrator,” says Mayor Chalmers. “We are very pleased that he has brought his experience and expertise to Chestermere. He is already up to speed and providing strong leadership for our organization during this period.”

In 2014, Mr. Vincent retired as the CAO of Parkland County, capping a career of more than 40 years serving in various municipalities throughout Alberta. Upon his formal retirement, Mr. Vincent served several short term contracts as an Interim CAO in municipalities needing senior leadership support while they searched for a permanent CAO.

Mr. Vincent will serve as the Interim CAO until Council finds a permanent CAO. The job posting for the CAO is available at Anyone qualified is welcome to submit their application to
