Rothermich becomes St. Charles community relations liaison
St. Charles Mayor Sally Faith has named Don Rothermich to serve in the position of community relations liaison for the city of St. Charles. Formerly a member of the St. Charles CVB, Rothermich will fill a previously established position as a part of the city’s office of administration; his appointment to this position was effective March 11, 2013.
“Don brings a wealth of experience to the City Hall team,” Faith said. “We are fortunate to have him on staff as his diverse background and education will be of great benefit and value to the city, its residents and business owners. In terms of my office, Don will provide critical support in an effort to manage appointments to our city’s more than 25 boards and commissions. Don has been a St. Charles resident for more than 30 years, so he’s already plugged in, well-versed and ready to hit the ground running.”
Previously, Rothermich served the city of St. Charles in the capacity of corporate sales manager, a position he’s held since July 2011. Previously, he’s worked as a community manager for the American Cancer Society, an admissions/financial aid counselor at Lindenwood University and an order analyst at Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
While working his way through college, he provided administrative support for the St. Charles Parks & Recreation department.
According to Michael Spurgeon, director of administration, the position of community relations liaison has a variety of duties and responsibilities day-to-day. However, the position primarily focuses on two areas, which include receiving and responding to citizen concerns relative to city operations and insuring city projects and initiatives are completed timely and within budget.
“In his new position, Don will be well-positioned to take appropriate action on behalf of city residents and business owners in an effort to resolve issues in a timely fashion,” Spurgeon said.
Rothermich said he considers it both an honor and a privilege to be selected for the community relations job. “I am grateful for the opportunity to give back to the community in which I have grown up, and look forward immensely to working with the residents of St. Charles to resolve any issues promptly,” he said. “Likewise, I am excited to work with Mayor Faith, the St. Charles City Council and the entire city staff.”
Rothermich holds a masters in business administration with an emphasis in marketing from Lindenwood University. He also attended Lindenwood for his undergraduate studies where he received a bachelor of arts in business administration.
