Indianapolis Marion County Public Library Board Selects UW-Madison SLIS Grad as New CEO

Not to mention the 2011 Indianapolis Chapter winner of the Badger of the Year Award.

Nytes will lead library. By 7-0 vote, board picks councilwoman with experience in system to be CEO.  (Indianapolis Star, 9/23/2011).

Excerpt:    After a nationwide search, the Indianapolis-Marion County Public Library Board ultimately found that the person with the best qualifications to lead the beleaguered system was right here at home.

The Library Board voted 7-0 Thursday night to appoint Jackie Nytes, a Democrat on the City-County Council, as its new chief executive. Nytes is also executive director of Mapleton-Fall Creek Development Corp. and former chief financial officer and associate director of management services for the library system.
 [Emphasis added.]

"I'm really honored," Nytes said after learning the vote was unanimous. "I'm really excited there is that kind of consensus."

Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard issued a news release Thursday night praising the appointment of Nytes and "her dedication to public service and commitment to improving our community."

Jackie is a native of Green Bay.
