Hatfield Township Commissioners voted unanimously Wednesday to appoint Aaron Bibro, 33, as the new township manager.
Bibro was selected from more than 49 applicants following resignation of Andrew Haines, according to The Reporter.
According to The Reporter, Bibro is lead administrator for a Pittsburgh suburban municipality and will begin April 1. Bibro is at present township manager of Robinson Township in Allegheny County, according to his LinkedIn profile.
"I'm leaving mostly for family reasons—my wife is from the Philly area, so it just puts us in a good position that way," Bibro told Moon Patch. "But I'm very sad to leave Robinson. This is a great community, and anyone would be lucky to be the manager here."
Bibro was previously a teacher with AmeriCorps from May 2004 to August 2005, and a constituent services representative for the Pennsylvania Senate.
Bibro attended University of Pittsburgh from 1998 to 2000, majoring in communications. He received a journalism degree from Point Park University in 2003. Bibro graduated from the Villanova University public administration master’s program in 2007.
According to the article, Bibro’s salary was not revealed because an employment agreement is not finalized.
Assistant Township Manager Devan Stewart remains interim township manager until April 1.
