Louis M. Andersen was chosen by a majority of Pinal County supervisors Wednesday to be the next Pinal County manager, the county announced in a tweet.
Andersen, the county’s public works director for the past six years, will become manager after the retirement of current Manager Greg Stanley in October. Andersen is an Air Force veteran, earned an MBA from City University in Seattle and completed Kennedy School’s Senior Executive Management Program at Harvard University.
The Board of Supervisors previously stated a preference for choosing the next county manager from within the county’s existing ranks. Other top finalists for the job were Christopher Keller, chief civil deputy in the Pinal County Attorney’s Office, and Leo Lew, assistant county manager.
