Lacombe appoints new chief administrative officer

City’s operations and planning services director moves into the position

City of Lacombe has a new chief administrative officer.

Matthew Goudy, who was Lacombe’s operations and planning services director from 2012-2018, took over the job effective today.

He also worked as Lacombe’s engineering services manager from 2007 to 2012.

Former CAO Dion Pollard left in late 2017 to become city manager for the City of Lloydminster.

The city said the position was advertised in January and attracted interest from many qualified candidates.

Goudy will serve as the chief administrative officer for the the North Red Deer Regional Wastewater Services Commission.

He is a committee member with the Alberta Urban Municipalities Commission’s Audit and Finance Committee, and an active member of the Government Finance Officers Association.

He is also a member of the Association of Professional Engineers, Geologists, and Geophysicists of Alberta and a member in good standing of Mensa Canada.
