Stanley, who announced last week that he would be leaving the job he has held since 2008, will oversee a staff of 800. Calgary is Canada’s third-largest city, with a population of more than 1 million.
In Montgomery, Stanley oversees a staff of 140 and receives an annual salary of $185,662. Calgary officials would not specify what Stanley’s salary would be but said it would range between approximately $175,000 and $282,000.
“We were looking for someone who was a strong visionary and a good communicator,” said Calgary City Manager Owen Tobert. “We’re pleased that Rollin has accepted our offer.”
Montgomery County officials wished Stanley well in his new job and said they hoped to name a successor before the end of the year. Stanley is scheduled to leave the job in mid-May, although a final date had not been set.
