New Managing Director Named

Pedro Ramos - the current City Solicitor - will become the new Managing Director after Phil Goldsmith leaves sometime this Spring (see story). Phil Goldsmith has performed wonderfully in this capacity for the past several years and leaves big shoes to fill. By all accounts, Pedro is up for the challenge; he's smart, effective, and well-liked. The Managing Director's job may be the most important in City government; essentially a Chief Operating Officer position, the Managing Director is responsible for day-to-day operations of major City departments like Police, Streets, and Fire. For more information about the responsibilities of this position, check out the electronic version of the Philadelphia City Charter.
