New Canaan’s highest elected official has confirmed that Tiger Mann, longtime assistant director and senior engineer of the Department of Public Works, has been promoted to take over the key municipal agency. First Selectman Rob Mallozzi said that an email went out Friday to Town Hall employees regarding Mann’s promotion. He was selected unanimously from among nine final candidates by a search committee that included Mallozzi himself, New Canaan Human Resources Director Cheryl Pickering-Jones, Town Council Chairman Bill Walbert, Administrative Officer Tom Stadler and former Town Hall Building Committee Chairman Michael Avgerinos. “Like others on the committee I am delighted to be able to move Tiger Mann up to the position of public works director,” Mallozzi told NewCanaanite.com. “He has done a phenomenal job for the town for the past 17 years and his customer service, his professionalism and all his accomplishments in town made him the absolute best person for this job.
