County Administrator to Lead Children's Medical Center

After over 30 years of dedicated service, Montgomery County Administrator Deborah A. Feldman is announcing that she is leaving her position for a new opportunity.  Ms. Feldman is taking her valuable leadership experience to serve as President and CEO of Children’s Medical Center of Dayton. 

“It has been an honor to serve the citizens of Montgomery County for over three decades with 15 of those years as County Administrator,” said Ms. Feldman. “I have had the privilege to lead and collaborate on major management challenges and community initiatives with an outstanding team of highly qualified professionals and community leaders.”

In addition to her significant responsibilities for the day-to-day operations of the County,  Ms. Feldman has been a leader in many critical community issues including economic development initiatives such as Riverscape and the Austin Road interchange on I-75; the Montgomery County Job Center, which continues to be an internationally recognized employment and workforce training center; the Montgomery County Out-of-School Youth Task Force, which helped reduce the overall high school drop-out rate from 25 percent in 1999 to 12 percent in 2007; the Community’s ten year plan to end chronic homelessness in the Dayton community, and the Montgomery County Healthcare Safety Net Task Force which worked to improve access to primary health care.

“I value the many relationships I have developed while working for Montgomery County and I look forward to continuing to serve the community in this new role,” added Feldman.   

County Commissioners expressed mixed emotions at the news of Feldman’s departure.  “The County is a much better place because of her leadership and County citizens are much better off as a result of her work,” said County Commission President Judy Dodge.  “While we are sad to see Debbie go, we are confident in the ability of our employees and leadership team to continue the outstanding level of services for our citizens.”

Feldman’s last day with Montgomery County is June 6, 2012.  She will begin her new role as President and CEO of Children’s Medical Center on July 1, 2012.

Joseph Tuss, Montgomery County Deputy Administrator will serve as interim County Administrator.
