Last Friday, Metro’s Board of Commissioners announced that Bob Baer, who has been serving as interim CEO since early last year, will stay on at Metro as the permanent CEO. The St. Louis Business Journal has a nice article about the news (as well as a much better picture of Mr. Baer than what I posted below from the executive briefing the other day). We should have announced this great news on the blog on Friday, but we were busy scurrying around getting ready for the launch of our long-range plan! The blog team plans to sit down with Mr. Baer sometime very soon and talk to him about his goals for the agency and also what he has managed to accomplish in the past 22 months. Check back here for that very soon.
