Rob Adams took office in January


There’s a new face gracing the halls at the Municipality of Grey Highlands' offices in Markdale. Rob Adams was recently announced as CAO earlier this year.

“I am ready to meet the challenges ahead as we continue to provide efficient and valued services,” said Adams as he commenced duties January 9.

Before joining the staff at Grey Highlands, Adams worked for many years in the private sector as a business leader and entrepreneur. In addition, he has a wealth of experience in government as former Mayor of the Town of Orangeville and Warden for Dufferin County, also serving on the Headwaters Health Care, Theatre Orangeville, Orangeville Police Commission and Orangeville Hydro Boards. He also holds a Master of Public Administration from Western University.

“I feel privileged to have the opportunity to join such a talented and respectful group of people and look forward to working in what I believe is an extraordinary community,” said Adams as he took his position with optimism amongst Mayor and Council as they anticipate working with Adams on the many projects and issues over the current term.

Adams may also be spotted at local sporting events as he has been an active coach in AAA minor hockey. 


At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a modest donation and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
