Meet the new, temporary, boss.
April White, the former Finance Director of Estero Fire Rescue, has been selected to replace soon-to-be-former Operations Manager Scott Connell at the GSCDD on an interim basis.
Connell announced last month that he was resigning his position with the Gateway Services Community Development District. His last day will be Friday, February 12.
White will receive one week of training from Connell beginning today, and will commence her 90-day tenure as Operations Manager next Monday.
In addition to spending 11 years with Estero Fire Rescue, White also worked as an accountant for the Lee County Clerk of Courts for 3 years, and as a Grant Coordinator for 2 years with the Lee County Board of County Commissioners.
White is certified District Manager with the Florida Association of Special Districts and she is also a Certified Public Accountant.
GSCDD District Manager Calvin Teague told the Board of Supervisors that White will remain in place for at least 3 months while he searches for Connell’s permanent replacement.
White holds a Bachelors Degree in Accounting and Business Management from the University of South Florida.
