Matt Landers appointed assistant county manager
Submitted by Howard B. Owens on January 9, 2014 - 6:06pm
After an extensive and time consuming national search that included 61 potential candidates. A short-list of 3 – 5 finalists was reviewed by County Management members and the best fit for both the County Manager’s Office and Genesee County government as we progress in this second decade of the 21st Century will be the appointment of Matthew Landers as the new Assistant County Manager effective February 1, 2014.
Matt, a native of Elba and presently a City of Batavia resident, brings his skills and enthusiasm and 10 years of experience as Deputy County Treasurer to his new role as a key operative in the Chief Administrative Office of Genesee County government and the recently revised duties and responsibilities of Assistant County Manager.
Matt is replacing Frank Ciaccia a 21+ year veteran of the Genesee County Manager’s Office who can now truly “retire” from active duty which he has very capably been doing since he announced his retirement in May 2012.
Matt and his wife, Melissa, are the proud parents of two children, Katie and Ben.
The transition from the County Treasurer’s Office to the County Manager’s Office has been and will be a joint collaboration between the two administrative arms of Genesee County government.
Congratulations Matt! I hope you put on your resume that you were a heck of an assistant tee ball coach in the Y league a few years ago!
Congrats and Good Luck Matt. That is a job that in this day and age can be very challenging indeed.
