Village of Niles Deputy Village Manager Hadley Skeffington-Vos has announced her resignation from the Village, effective January 7, 2022. Village Manager Joe La Margo, in consult with the Board of Trustees, has named current Assistant to the Village Manager Kathy Thake as Skeffington-Vos’s permanent replacement.
Skeffington-Vos joined the Village of Niles in 2013 as the Assistant Village Manager. In 2017, her position was reconfigured to encompass more responsibilities relating to the Human Resources department, accompanied by an elevation in title to Deputy Village Manager. For Thake, the promotion to Deputy Village Manager is the latest step in her career with the Village, which began in 2007 when she was hired as a part-time Clerk/Typist.
“Hadley has done a phenomenal job as Deputy Village Manager,” said Niles Mayor George D. Alpogianis, “including stepping up to go above and beyond as Acting Village Manager during the search process for Village Manager in 2021. She will be missed, and as Mayor I want to extend my sincerest thanks on behalf of the Board of Trustees. Kathy Thake has big shoes to fill, but is one of the sharpest minds in Village Hall and I know will do an excellent job for the citizens of Niles.”
“Hadley was essential to helping me get acclimated to the Village of Niles upon my arrival in 2021,” said Niles Village Manager Joe La Margo, “and I have to extend my deepest gratitude for all of her assistance, as well as her tireless service to this organization and the entire Niles community. We wish Hadley well in the next stage of her career. I am also excited for the future, as Kathy Thake brings a great deal of knowledge about our organization and community as one of the longest-serving employees of the Administration Department. She has been involved in high-level projects for years, and that continuity will be key. Any town would be lucky to have her on their leadership team, so I’m proud that we get to keep that great experience and talent right here within our own organization.”
Kathy Thake will officially assume duties as Deputy Village Manager on January 10, 2022.
