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.

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.
