WEST CHESTER — The Chester County Commissioners approved the promotion of Mark Rupsis to the position of Chief Operating Officer of the county.
“Mark has worked hard for the county for more than 30 years,” Commissioners’ Chair Terence Farrell said. “The promotion is well deserved.”
Commissioner Kathi Cozzone said, “Until early this year, the County had two senior staff members. Since February, Mark has done a remarkable job handling the additional workload, with the support of department directors, and has played an integral part in the operation of the county. This reorganization also means real cost savings for county taxpayers.”
Commissioner Ryan Costello added, “Mark has vast county government experience. His experience in various administrative capacities makes him well-equipped to serve as COO, and we look forward to continued excellent management and leadership for Chester County.”
As Chief Operating Officer, Rupsis oversees the operation of all county departments and serves as liaison to the Court of Common Pleas, county elected officials, and all county authorities and boards.
In addition to his role as Chief Operating Officer, Mark is an adjunct professor at Widener University and serves on the boards of the Southeastern Pennsylvania March of Dimes, the Chester County Economic Development Council and the Lionville YMCA.
