There is a new Chief Administrative Officer in Kingsville.

John Norton comes to the town after a recent tenure was at the Township of Georgian Bluffs as its Chief Administrative Officer. Previously, he worked at the Municipality of Chatham-Kent holding a number of positions over the course of nine years, most recently as General Manager of Community Development where he had responsibility for economic development and long-term community planning, among other responsibilities.

“We’re excited to have John join our municipality as CAO,” said Kingsville Mayor, Nelson Santos. “He’s a proven leader with a wealth of experience who, alongside Council and staff, will help bring the vision, goals and objectives of our community to fruition.”

As CAO, Norton is the Town’s senior administrator responsible directly to Town Council for ensuring effective day-to-day management of the municipality, while creating a collaborative team environment by engaging with both staff, Council, residents and businesses.

“Kingsville is such an exciting place to live and work,” said John. “I am looking forward to living in the community and working closely with Mayor Santos, Council and the employees at the Town.”

Norton holds his Law Degree from the University of Western Ontario, a Master of Arts in Human Resource Management from Trinity College, and a Bachelor of Arts from Taylor University College/ University of Alberta. Before entering public service, John worked in private practice with a focus on municipal law.

His first day with the Town will be Tuesday, September 8th, 2020.
