Ogemaw County is located in the mid-section of the Lower Peninsula of Michigan, with abundant small lakes and outdoor recreation opportunities. The county is seeking an experienced leader/facilitator to move the organization forward and build trust between all levels of government as its first chief administrative officer.

In the 1930s, anthropologists working in the area uncovered three Native American mound formations. These and other mounds discovered in Ogemaw County confirm that ancient mound dwellers were inhabitants of the area long before Christopher Columbus arrived in the Americas. The county was originally created by the Michigan Legislature in 1840 but was absorbed into a neighboring county before being finally organized in 1875. The county's name is an Anglicization of the word ogimaa, meaning chief.

The new county administrator will function as the chief financial officer within the organization. The successful candidate will possess excellent skills in all aspects of governmental budgeting, procurement, and resource allocation. Historically, the elected county clerk has fulfilled some of the administrator’s duties in addition to those of the clerk’s office. The current county clerk is not expected to run for re-election in November 2020.
