Kimberly Staley who has served as chief administrative officer for two years is leaving the city at the end of this month to become CEO of Capital Workforce Partners in Hartford. Mayor Joe Ganim announced on Tuesday that a search for her replacement is underway and will be posted on the city’s application portal later this week.
“Kimberly has done an exceptional job leading our staff and has been a true asset for our city over the last two years. We are grateful for her service and dedication. She will certainly be sorely missed,” stated Ganim in a news release.
The city’s CAO oversees all city department heads.
Prior to joining the city, Staley served as vice president and director of client services for the KRA Corporation, a workforce development company. She was hired as assistant chief administrative officer prior to her promotion about two years ago. Staley was raised in Father Panik Village and PT Barnum public housing projects.
