Chris Ludle Appointed

 Deputy Service Director

AKRON, OH (November 25, 2015) - Mayor Jeff Fusco announced Wednesday the appointment of Chris D. Ludle as the City’s new Deputy Director of Public Service, a position recently vacated by Phil Montgomery, who accepted an appointment as the City’s Chief Information Officer.

Ludle, who currently serves as the City’s Highway Maintenance Superintendent, brings a decade of experience with the Department of Public Service to the position.  Additionally, Ludle’s twelve years of experience in the private sector at Rubbermaid will bring a valuable and needed perspective to the service operations that are most important to Akron residents. 

“Chris takes a comprehensive, hands-on approach to his work that I greatly admire,” Mayor Jeff Fusco remarked. “As someone who held the position of Deputy Director of Public Service for 10 years, I know exactly what it takes to do the job.  What I see in Chris is the right combination of experience and insight necessary to hit the ground running and shoulder the significant responsibilities of the position.”

“Chris’s first-hand experience supervising aspects of the CSO project, as well as his substantial management and organizational experience will be an asset to the Director of Public Service’s Office and the City,” Mayor Fusco added. 

Ludle is a lifelong Akron resident, a volunteer Athletic Director and Treasurer at St. Anthony’s parish, and a member of the board of the North Akron Baseball Association.  Ludle will start December 1, and his salary will be $106,454 per year, the same as the previous Deputy Director of Public Service.
