Township of Uxbridge Welcomes New CAO

UXBRIDGE: The Township of Uxbridge is pleased to announce that Kristi Honey will become the new CAO of the Township of Uxbridge effective December 17th, 2019. Ms. Honey replaces Ingrid Svelnis who has been the CAO since 2008, and who has worked at the Township in various capacities since 1985. Ms. Honey, a resident of an adjacent municipality, is very familiar with the Township of Uxbridge and has participated in Uxbridge’s social, cultural, and recreational activities for over thirty years. Kristi Honey brings strong academic and senior-executive level experience to the role of CAO through her previous role as Chief Information Security Officer with Ontario Power Generation (OPG) and Director, Financial Information Management Services at the Region of Durham. “It is a pleasure and honour to join a leading municipality to which my family and I feel very connected,” said Ms. Honey. “I look forward to serving the Township of Uxbridge as their new CAO, and the great things we will continue to accomplish together.” A CAO hiring committee has been working since the spring to find the right replacement. With the help of an executive search firm, the Township received over 50 strong applicants for the position. A search committee, which included Mayor Barton and Councillors Garrod and Popp shortlisted candidates. The recommendation to hire Ms. Honey was unanimously adopted by Council. “Our search committee has worked over many months,” said Mayor Barton. “We had a great pool of potential successors to choose from but I know our decision to choose Kristi Honey was the right one. She brings the right leadership credentials and both entrepreneurial and public sector experience. Importantly for us, she also brings an understanding of the many unique cultural and social aspects of the Township of Uxbridge. She demonstrated to us she wants to be a part of guiding the Township of Uxbridge to a vibrant future without compromising the wonderful aspects of our community that make us unique. We know we have a new CAO who will work passionately for the betterment of our community. I and the rest of Council very much look forward to working with Kristi in her new role.”
