After a thorough search, the Tuolumne Utilities District (TUD) Board of Directors has selected an Interim General Manager to lead the District until a permanent General Manager is in place.
In April this year, the Board began the search process for an interim general manager to oversee the general manager duties until the Board can conduct a thorough recruitment for the permanent General Manager position.
After a series of Closed Session meetings and interviews with possible candidates, the Board has selected Don Perkins as the Interim General Manager for the District. Mr. Perkins has served as the District’s Operations Director for the past six years.
“All the candidates were excellent. The TUD board came to their decision with due diligence and mindfulness. I would like to congratulate Mr. Perkins and also thank the TUD employees for stepping up during this time,” states Board President, Barbara Balen.
“I am grateful for the opportunity and the confidence the Board has instilled in me. I look forward to working with the Board, TUD’s talented staff, and community partners in this capacity to continue meeting the challenges and opportunities facing the District,” states Don Perkins.
Mr. Perkins will begin his role as TUD Interim General Manager on June 14, 2021.
