Milwaukee County names Torres' Interim Replacement

January 15, 2009

MILWAUKEE COUNTY, WI - Jack Takerian, director of facilities management and operations for Milwaukee County, will serve as interim director of the Department of Transportation and Public Works, County Executive Scott Walker said, according to The Business Journal of Milwaukee.

Takerian will be taking over the responsibilities of George Torres who resigned to become CEO of La Causa, a bilingual social services agency on Milwaukee's south side.

The county said the process has begun for a nationwide search to find a successor for Torres.

Bill Tietjen will be acting as fleet manager under a personal services agreement pending the hire of a permanent fleet manager. Dave Schaning, assistant director of facilities management and operations, will assume Takerian’s role as facilities director during the transition.
