Stanislaus Names New CEO

The Stanislaus County Board of Supervisors has chosen a replacement for retiring CEO Stan Risen. Assistant Executive Officer Jody Hayes will assume the top job on August 12, overseeing more than 4,400 employees and a budget of $1.18 billion.

Hayes has been with the county since 1999 when he took a job in the Probation Department. He became a consultant in the Chief Executive Office in 2004 and Assistant Executive Officer 10 years later.

Hayes said this latest opportunity is like piloting "the best plane ever," with the Stanislaus community as his co-pilot. He will earn a base salary of $240,000 a year.
