Vail to interview town manager candidates on June 26 and 27
VAIL —After expanding its search for a new town manager, the Vail Town Council has invited additional candidates to visit Vail for on site interviews.
The applicants will participate in community tours and interviews Monday and Tuesday. Members of the community are encouraged to drop by a community meet-and-greet at 5:30 p.m., Monday at Donovan Pavilion to learn more about the candidates. Interviews with the council and other screening panels will also take place during the two-day visit, which will conclude on Tuesday.
The six candidates confirmed to participate in the upcoming interviews are (in alphabetical order):
• Greg Clifton, Municipal Manager in Telluride.
• Tobin Follenweider, Chief Operating and Performance Officer for Colorado Department of Natural Resources.
• Matthew (Matt) Fulton, active with nonprofit agencies, and former City Manager in West Saint Paul, Minnesota.
• Scott Hahn, Borough Manager in Skagway, Alaska.
• Michael (Mike) Mallinoff, County Administrator in Charles County, Maryland.
• Daniel (Dan) Singer, Special Projects, City of Del Mar, California; former City Manager in Poway, California.
The town manager search is being facilitated by the executive search firm Strategic Government Resources based in Keller, Texas.
The recruitment process was initiated earlier this year after former manager Stan Zemler announced he would be leaving after 13 years on the job. Vail Town Clerk Patty McKenny is serving as interim manager.
The graduates of Vail Mountain School’s class of 2019 will be off to far-flung destinations next fall, set to enter college in one of 16 different states or explore the world on a gap year. One grad is even attending college in Canada.
