South County man offered assistant county manager position
After an interview with County Manager Larry Werner and two days after Monday’s public meet-and-greet, the position of assistant county manager has been offered to Bradley Hurley at the salary of $105,000.
“Bradley will bring a dynamic skill set to the Douglas County organization,” said Werner. “We are excited about the assistant county manager position and how the new role will contribute to providing public services to the people of Douglas County.”
Hurley, a resident of the Topaz Lake area, is currently the information technology officer for the Marine Corps Mountain Warfare Training Center located near Bridgeport. Hurley went to work for the center in 2010 and has been IT officer since Dec. 22, 2013.
He is a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps, who retired in 2009. During his career, Bradley was the recipient of the Meritorious Service Medal, the Navy Commendation Medal with second award, the Navy Achievement Medal with forth award for outstanding meritorious service and performance of duty.
Hurley holds a bachelor of science degree in multidisciplinary studies from Grantham University. He is currently studying at Michigan State University’s Eli Broad College of Business and is on track to receive a master of science degree in leadership, management and strategy in the fall of 2018. He is an alumnus of the Graduate School Executive Potential Program which he completed in June 2013.
Previously the assistant county manager and chief financial officer was a dual role. Douglas County commissioners added the new position which separated the two roles into the 2017/2018 fiscal year budget. Eight people were screened for the job. Hurley and Genoa Town Manager Phil Ritger were the finalists.
