The outgoing chief has accepted the role of vice president of process and execution for Farm Credit Mid-America after leading tech efforts in the city dating back to August 2016.
Louisville, Ky.'s chief of performance improvement is departing city service for an opportunity in the private sector.
Daro Mott, who first came to local government in Louisville in 2016, is slated to become vice president of process and execution with Farm Credit Mid-America in January. In a tweet, he noted that Carmen Moreno-Rivera, who was previously senior process consultant with the city, will take over as the interim chief.
Bittersweet news! I will join the Farm Credit Mid-America Team as its Vice President of Process Improvement and Execution. Carmen Moreno-Rivera will take over as Interim Chief of Performance Improvement in the city. She is brilliant! @Carmen502Lou https://t.co/LZd9Hm4XBt— Daro Mott (@daromott) November 17, 2018
This marks the end — at least for now — of a lengthy career in local government for Mott.
Before coming to Louisville, Mott served as the chief innovation officer for Ohio’s Cuyahoga County government for nearly a year following almost a decade of working for Louisville in a range of positions, including policy analyst, organizational performance coordinator and deputy director of the Office of Performance Improvement.
During Mott’s time with the city, Louisville has charged ahead with its tech and innovation work, much of which his office had a part in. These efforts include projects like LouieStat, the city’s performance management system.
