Commissioners Appoint Mallinoff as County Administrator

The Charles County Commissioners are pleased to announce the appointment of Michael D. Mallinoff as county administrator. Mallinoff will begin his employment with Charles County Government on May 4, 2015.

As county administrator, Mallinoff is the county’s chief administrative officer. In this role, he is responsible for planning, directing, and reviewing all county government operations, and for supervising department actions, personnel matters, budgetary and fiscal procedures, and routine administrative actions according to county policies and procedures.

Mallinoff has more than 25 years of leadership experience in the government sector, primarily local government. In August 2010, he became the City of Annapolis, Md.’s first city manager, providing oversight for nine departments, more than 600 employees, a $94 million operating budget, and a $100 million capital budget. His career with the City of Annapolis spanned nearly two decades, where he was promoted to several key leadership positions. From 1995-2002, Mallinoff was city manager for the City of Newport, R.I., where he was responsible for six departments and more than 500 permanent and seasonal employees. During his time as City of Newport manager, Mallinoff facilitated a financial plan resulting in a bond rating upgrade and an $8 million cash reserves increase over an eight-year period.

“I am honored to have been selected by the Board of Commissioners, and look forward to joining the Charles County community and the Charles County Government family, said Mallinoff.

The recruitment process was a rigorous one that involved a national search. The Board of Commissioners selected Mallinoff to fill the position based on his stellar qualifications and abilities.

Commissioner President Peter F. Murphy said, “I am pleased to welcome Mr. Mallinoff to Charles County Government. I know he will be an asset to the county in this position.”

Most recently, Mallinoff served as chief operating officer for the Maryland State Department of Information Technology (IT), a department of over 150 employees and an operating budget in excess of $50 million. He led a statewide initiative to update the terms and conditions of IT contracts, and was responsible for more than $1 billion in major IT and telecommunications procurements and the oversight of the implementation of the state’s major IT projects.

Mallinoff earned a juris doctorate degree from the University of Baltimore and a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Maryland, College Park. He received training from the Gettysburg (Pa.) Leadership Institute and the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Policy at the University of Virginia. Additionally, Mallinoff is a prolific public speaker, and is actively involved with a host of professional, civic, and community organizations. His list of affiliations include: 25-year, credentialed manager with the International City/County Management Association; board member, Hoffberger Center for Professional Ethics; former board member, Annapolis Economic Development; and member, Maryland State Climate Commission, Greenhouse Gas, and Carbon Mitigation work group.

Mallinoff was born and raised in Prince George’s County, Md.
