CA Names A New Pres

UPDATE: The Sun finally snagged its intervu, and has details on the vote.

Board members said Nelson was a heavy favorite during the closed voting session Monday night.

"Phil gave us a very strategic vision and a nice, quiet Midwestern demeanor," O'Connor said. "It wasn't a close vote."

Here's the release from CA. The Sun says it is still seeking an interview. Hmmmmm.

The Columbia Association (CA) Board of Directors announces Phillip Nelson as the next president of the Columbia Association. This appointment comes after an 18-month selection process that involved community input from CA-assessed residents and businesses who were able to submit desired qualifications, attend public forums and have representation through the Board’s Citizen’s Advisory Committee. This committee helped the Board and DHR International, an executive search firm, in the recruitment, selection and interview process.

Phillip Nelson will begin as president of the Columbia Association May 1. He received a B.A. in political science from Fort Hays State University in 1971. His experience includes serving as city manager of Northglenn, Colo., from 2001 to 2006; city manager Derby, Kan., from 1988 to 2001; and county administrator of Barton County, Kan., from 1986 to 1988. Nelson is currently the city manager of Troy, Mich., where he has been employed since 2006.
