Alan Candioto brings experience and vision to City position

Mayor Tom Henry is pleased to announce the hiring of Alan R. Candioto as the City of Fort Wayne'€™s Human Resources director. Candioto has served as a human resources executive in the private sector and brings more than 38 years of professional experience and credentials to his new post.

“We'€™re committed to bringing the highest caliber leadership to the City'€™s human resources functions,” said Mayor Tom Henry. “Al will add to our efforts in strategic planning and in constantly being ready to provide the highest quality services to our diverse workforce.”

Candioto most recently held the position of regional director of human resources for Bethesda Lutheran Homes & Services and prior to that, served as the director of human resources for Fort Wayne'€™s BF Goodrich Tire/Michelin, NA location.

Mayor Henry and the Allen County Commissioners say they remain committed to working toward improved cooperation between City and County human resource efforts. Since earlier this year, both departments are now located in adjoining space on the third floor of the City-County Building, which will soon include an expanded and shared staff training facility for collaborative efforts in professional development. In addition to training, the City and County are continuing to explore additional opportunities to achieve better efficiencies by coordinating and sharing the resources of the two departments.

Candioto will begin his tenure with the City at the end of this month.
