Chestermere Council hires new Chief Administrative Officer

New CAO Announcement

Chestermere City Council is pleased to announce that they have hired Bernie Morton as the new Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) for the municipality.  mr morton

“Mr. Morton is coming to us with an exceptional blend of big city experience and small community understanding,” says Mayor Marshall Chalmers. “We are looking forward to having his skill set here in Chestermere as he takes on the role of leading this organization.”

Originally from Ontario, Morton has over 24 years of experience in government, public affairs and strategic communication. Having worked for Toronto City Council for over ten years and as a senior leader for public affairs organizations, he is known to be a strategic and results-oriented leader. With experience as CAO for the Town of Kindersley in Saskatchewan and as a board member for the Saskatchewan Economic Development Alliance, he is bringing a municipal and economic development mindset to Chestermere.

“Increasing our non-residential tax base is a major priority for us and we believe that in addition to providing excellent administrative leadership, Mr. Morton is the right person to help us bring more industry to our community,” says Mayor Chalmers.

The CAO is City Council’s only employee and leads the entire municipal organization. Mr. Pat Vincent is currently serving as Chestermere’s interim CAO while Council sought a permanent placement with the help of Bruce Malcolm of Ravenhill Group Recruitment Inc.

“We were thrilled to have very strong candidates express their interest in Chestermere, as that speaks volumes to the positive reputation of our community,” says Chalmers. “In the end however, we felt that Mr. Morton’s experiences, skill set and personality are the best fit for Chestermere and we look forward to welcoming him here.”

Mr. Morton and his family will be moving to Chestermere this summer and he will begin his new role August 1.
