Board of Supervisors Appoint Leo Lew as Interim County Manager
Date: 11/10/2020

The Pinal County Board of Supervisors appointed Deputy County Manager Leo Lew as Interim County Manager on November 10, 2020 after the departure of County Manager Louis Andersen.

Andersen resigned after 14 months in the position, before which he led Public Works for six years.

Lew was a finalist for the County Manager's role in 2019 and will be supported by Deputy County Manager Himanshu Patel.

With three members of the Board departing at the end of the year, the search for a new County Manager will not begin until the new Board members take office in January.

During the November 10th Board of Supervisors meeting, Vice-Chairman Pete Rios thanked Andersen for his leadership, particularly during the pandemic, "He has kept the County on the straight and narrow and growing economically in spite of COVID-19. I wish him the best in his future endeavors."

Speaking of Leo Lew's appointment, Chairman of the Board Anthony Smith commented, "Leo has been with the County for over a decade and has worked closely with both Louis Andersen and the previous County Manager Greg Stanley, so he is well placed to take on the role and steer the County until the appointment of a permanent County Manager in the New Year."
