Two New Directors in Springwater
Posted on 04/13/2016

As the result of a realignment within the Corporation, two Managers have been advanced to the role of Director within their respective departments.

Brent Spagnol, former Manager of Planning has been promoted to Director of Planning Services and By-law Enforcement. Brent began his career with the Township of Springwater in 2003 as the Planner. Since that time he has gone on to achieve his Registered Professional Planner designation and has been an active member of the Ontario Professional Planner Institute since 2008. In his new role, Brent will continue to lead Planning Services, as well as take on the role of directing the By-law Enforcement activities.

Nick Ippolito, formerly the Manager of Building Services, has been designated the Director of Building Services. Nick started with the Township of Springwater in 2002 as the Junior Plans Examiner and attained his Certified Building Code Official Certification in 2006. In 2008 he was promoted to Chief Building Official and has held that role until his recent advancement to Director. His new role is reflective of the growth that Building Services has experienced throughout the previous years. Nick will maintain his appointment as Chief Building Official for the Township.

With the recent departure of John Daly, Director of Corporate Services, to become the Simcoe County Clerk, the Director of Corporate Services position will not be filled.

“We are proud of the accomplishments and contributions Nick and Brent have made to the Corporation,” says Mayor Bill French. “Their promotion is reflective of the goals listed in the Township’s new Strategic Plan and our desire to enhance skills and professional development for our staff and promote from within.”

“The change in positions recognizes the exceptional commitment and effort that Nick and Brent have made in their departmental and professional growth,” says Robert Brindley, Chief Administrative Officer. “We look forward to working with them in their expanded roles.”
