In recent years, Marin County has undergone organizational and leadership change, specifically in the departments responsible for providing the County’s administrative functions. The Board of Supervisors provided for the formation of Administrative Services, led by the County Administrator and composed of the Departments of Finance, Human Resources, and Information Services and Technology. The County hired a new Director of Human Resources in 2010, a new Director of Finance in 2011, and a new Director of Information Services and Technology in 2012. With these departments working together across departmental lines, the County has taken the next step in a program of continual improvement in the management of County resources.
