The El Dorado Hills CSD Board of Directors announced after a five-month national search they recently hired John P. Skeel as the new CSD general manager.

Skeel joins the district with more than 22 years of related parks and recreation and private sector career experience.

In order to meet the changing economic climate, over the past two years the district has been moving towards a more strategic and private sector approach towards finances and service delivery.  In doing so, “We developed a very specific set of criteria and traits we were looking for,” said Board Vice President Guy Gertsch.

The candidates were put through a comprehensive application and interview process.  Of the more than 70 inquiries received, three candidates advanced through the entire consideration process, which included a scrupulous panel interview conducted by five industry professionals and the district’s attorney.  The entire Board of Directors conducted the final interview, a diligent process that included, among other challenges, a professional presentation.

“John stood out due to his experiences that directly relate to the challenges facing the district today and challenges we foresee in the future,” said Board President Noelle Mattock.

Mr. Skeel’s first day with the district will come in January.

“I’m excited to be joining the CSD,” Skeel said. “Along with my wife and three children we look forward to becoming a part of this marvelous community.”
