Santa Barbara County Hires New CEO

Posted on Tuesday, October 8, 2013 11:56am


Santa Barbara County Supervisors today unanimously approved the hiring of a new County CEO.

Mona Miyasato will take over the county’s top non-elected post this coming December.  She’s currently Marin County’s Chief Assistant County Administrator, a post she’s held since 2008.

Before her tenure there, Miyasato worked in various post for the City of Santa Monica for a decade, including Deputy City Manager.

Supervisors approved a four year contract which calls for a $230,000 annual salary, plus other benefits and allowances.

She will replace Chandra Waller, who’s been Santa Barbara County’s CEO since November of 2010.  Waller’s contract was not renewed, and she’s leaving the post at the end of this month.
