After Two-And-A-Half Years At Niagara Region, Schlange To Take Top Job In Brampton
Public Statement from Harry Schlange
Posted April 8, 2016 on Niagara At Large
Niagara Region, Ontario – This past Wednesday (April 6th), I committed toinforming you of my decision regarding an offer from the City of Brampton toserve as their CAO. After much consideration, I have decided to accept this position.
This was a difficult decision. While I’m excited to take on a new challenge in Brampton, I am genuinely saddened to leave behind an organization with such great people.
As someone who grew up in Niagara, I’m particularly proud of what we have accomplished. Once we signaled that our priority was to support local area municipalities and work together for a strong Niagara, mayors and senior officials embraced this unity almost instantaneously.
Together, we demonstrated that Niagara is serious about creating opportunities, and other levels of government have taken notice.
Within our organization there has been an incredible transformation in how the Region works. We consolidated our operations to become more business-like and brought in fresh ideas and people from the public and private sectors to work alongside our long-term employees with an intense focus on getting results for Niagara.
This organizational transformation has been validated by a number of external parties, including auditors at Standard and Poor’s.
I thank the many individuals I’ve had the pleasure of working with, both inside our organization and throughout Niagara’s communities. These individuals have built a foundation that will lead Niagara to a brighter future.
