Saddle Hills County is pleased to announce the appointment of Cary Merritt to the position of Chief Administrative Office (CAO) effective August 14, 2019.


“We are pleased to welcome Cary to his new duties and responsibilities as CAO and we look forward to working together for the future of the County, “says Reeve Alvin Hubert.


Saddle Hills Council began the process of searching for a new CAO upon the announcement, on May 22, 2019, that former CAO Joulia Whittleton had accepted the position of CAO for the County of Grande Prairie effective July 15, 2019.


“The County has taken important strides forward in the last few years and we are confident that Cary will help us to build on our successes,” says Hubert.


Merritt joined the County in 2014, and has served as Director of Corporate Services since 2016.


Prior to coming to Saddle Hills County, Merritt developed extensive experience in both the municipal and private sectors.


“I’m looking forward to taking on the challenges of my new position and look forward to serving Saddle Hills County,” says Merritt, adding, “I know Council has some very significant and important initiatives and goals to achieve and I know that, working together, we can achieve those objectives.”
