Three Candidates Emerge For County Administrator

Three Candidates Emerge For County Administrator

By Beth Milligan

Grand Traverse County commissioners will interview three candidates for the position of county administrator after a search firm assisted the board with narrowing a field of 45 applications down to a handful of finalists.

Commissioners met Wednesday with Vice President Jaymes Vettraino of search firm GovHR USA to discuss the finalists and identify candidates they wanted to invite for in-person interviews. Vettraino told the board a total of 45 applications were submitted from 14 states for the county’s top position, which will be vacated by retiring County Administrator Tom Menzel at the end of 2017.

After reviewing each application, GovHR USA pared the candidates down to 35 who met minimum qualification requirements and then conducted further assessments – including Skype interviews, social media and light background checks, and reference calls – to present five recommended finalists to the board. more
