It is with mixed emotions that the Town of Orangeville announces that Ed Brennan, the current Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) has decided to step aside from the role to allow the Town to hire a permanent, full-time CAO.

Mr. Brennan was first hired in December 2008 as Manager, Facilities. He became Director, Parks and Recreation in 2013 before moving to the CAO position, first as acting and then interim CAO beginning in 2015 and permanently hired in the role in 2016.

Currently, the role is filled with an Interim Acting CAO, Jennifer Innis. Ed Brennan holds the permanent role, however he remains off on medical leave. With Ed Brennan now stepping aside from the role, the recruitment will now be for a permanent full-time CAO.

“We continue to wish Ed well as he remains on medical leave and thank him for his many dedicated years of service to our community,” said Mayor Lisa Post. “He has been a strong advocate for our Town and his leadership will be missed.”

The recruitment process for the CAO will begin in the coming weeks.
