The city has a new city manager.
Just over two months since the city severed the contract with former city manager Garry McKay, the city announced Matt Noble has been appointed the city manager. The announcement was made on Wednesday and he will assume his position on Oct. 1.
“I’m very pleased that Moose Jaw was able to attract a candidate of Mr. Noble’s calibre,” said Mayor Deb Higgins in the release. “He brings sound experience and a proven track record that will benefit our community as we move forward and build for the future.”
According to a news release from the city, Noble has held similar roles in Merritt B.C. for the past three years and with Swift Current for nine years.
Before he worked as a city manager in Swift Current, Noble worked for Provo Power Company Ltd., now owned by Fortis, where he reported on financial and planning issues to the board of directors.
"As CFO he was responsible for all financial and accounting functions including management information systems, long range planning, regulatory reporting, human resources and administration, banking and investments," said the release. "Mr. Noble’s other experiences include senior positions with Development Companies and the Northwest Territories Power Corporation."
Noble is also a certified management accountant with experience in municipal government policy, public administration, community development, economic development and provincial legislation. He has also led several strategic initiatives, plans and operating and capital budgets.
