Mayor Nutter this morning announced three new leaders for his administration:
Allan Frank was named as the city's new Chief Information Officer. Frank, coming from the private sector company The AKA Group, said he was excited to work on the city's new 311 system and other programs that could make an impact on the lives of city residents. "I see this as a real opportunity to give back," Frank said.
Fran Burns, who had been a deputy commissioner of the city's Department of Licenses & Inspections, was named commissioner of the department. Burns said she wanted to make L&I more friendly, smarter, faster and better. "That's how simple it is and that's what we're going to strive for."
David Wilson was named Deputy Managing Director for administration, with responsibility for the departments that handle city records, public property, fleet management, human resources and procurement. Wilson comes to Philadelphia from the Private Industry Council of Milwaukee County in Wisconsin. Nutter joked about bringing newcomers to city government as a way of boosting the city's population. "We are doing it person by person," Nutter said.
