City of Windsor Chief Administrative Officer to Depart Role
Jason Reynar is departing his role as Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) for the City of Windsor, effective Friday, April 1, 2022.
“It has been my honour and privilege to serve the residents of this community,” said outgoing CAO Jason Reynar. “I am very proud of the hard work and resiliency City staff have demonstrated over this last year.”
Over the course of the past year, CAO Reynar has helped initiate several important milestone projects that will continue to have a lasting impact on the City of Windsor, including the following:
Implementation of the Windsor Works economic diversification plan, including the realignment of City administration to focus on innovation and economic development;
Assembling a successful municipal investment attraction package to help secure the LG-Stellantis joint-venture battery production facility;
Meaningful investments in affordable housing, including a significant $170-million, 8-year repair and renewal program for all local CHC units.
“This past year has presented many challenges,” said Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens. “Under Jason’s leadership, administration rose to meet those challenges with professionalism and dedication. I wish Jason nothing but the best for his future endeavors.”
Over the next several months, individual members of the Corporate Leadership Team (CLT) will step into the role in a temporary basis, and recently retired CAO Onorio Colucci will return to City Hall, also in an acting capacity.
“There’s no shortage of talent at City Hall,” continued Dilkens. “CLT is well placed to govern their individual departments and I’m thrilled to report that O.C. will come back to lend a hand over the next few months.”
A formal recruitment will begin in due course.
