Charlotte Mecklenburg Library Looking for Mid-Career Corporate or Nonprofit Exec
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Library CEO search down to six names, all secret. (Charlotte Observer, 3/15/2012)
Excerpt: Six candidates remain in the running to be the next CEO of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library, but library officials are keeping their names secret because they are well-known employees of other local businesses and charities.
Library trustee Ed Williams, who is leading the search committee, described the six as talented experts who work “in the corporate or nonprofit community - executives in mid-career.”
Naming all six, he said, might jeopardize careers for those not picked.
The selection committee could make a final choice by the end of this month, he added, at which point the board of trustees will vote. Interim CEO Vick Phillips said he’d like to make the winner’s name public in May if not earlier.
However, the library board has no plan to seek public input before taking a final vote, through the vote itself will be at an open meeting.
