Oroville, CA – Butte County’s Chief Administrative Officer, Paul Hahn, announced he will retire from Butte County at the end of October 2017 after seven years of service to the County. Hahn has served in county government for 29 years; spending the majority of his career in Sacramento.
Hahn joined Butte County in 2010 and navigated the County out of the economic downturn that caused drastic declines in County revenue and reshaped the organization. Mr. Hahn’s leadership helped the County face numerous challenges head on and make responsible fiscal decisions to create a stable future for the County.
Board of Supervisors Chairman, Bill Connelly stated about Hahn, “He has steered the County through some difficult times and kept us afloat. Whoever follows him will have some big shoes to fill. He has been a steady influence and he will be missed. We wish him well in his retirement.”
“I am extremely grateful to the Board of Supervisors, staff, department heads and community members that I have been able to serve with side-by-side," says Hahn, “I am very proud of what the county team has accomplished over the last seven years. While I know that there are still many challenges that lie ahead, l see the future for the County as bright.”
Hahn will continue in his role through October until a replacement is named.
