City Manager Announces Appointments to Key Leadership Positions
Littleton City Manager Mark Relph announced the appointment of three people to key leadership positions. G. Randolph Young, formerly City Manager of Parker, Colorado, will begin work June 12 as Acting Deputy City Manager. Young replaces Mike Braaten who will become Deputy Executive Director of South Suburban Parks and Recreation. “Randy will be able to hit the ground running,” Relph said. “He brings a wealth of experience in city management including 20 years as a city manager and five years as an assistant city administrator. He is familiar with the regional issues in the south metro area having also served as city manager in neighboring Sheridan.”
Keith Reester has accepted the position of Acting Public Works Director. Reester is the former public works director for Loveland, Colorado and has experience in the public, private, and non-profit sectors driving change, improving performance and producing high performing profitable teams. Reester replaces Relph who was recently appointed to city manager.
Julie Lanier is serving as Acting Human Resources Director. She replaces Erich Won Savage who recently accepted a similar position with South Suburban Parks and Recreation. Lanier has worked for the City of Littleton for four years and earned her Professional in Human Resources designation from the Human Resources Certification Institute. She holds nine years of progressive human resources experience in both the private and public sector.
“I’m excited to fill these important management positions as we move the city forward implementing city council’s priorities and beginning the 2018 budget process,” Relph added. “With input from the Executive Team, I’ll work on filling these positions on a permanent basis over the next six to nine months.”
