The Municipality of the District of Barrington is pleased to announce the hiring of Mr. Chris Frotten as their Chief Administrative Officer, starting on November 26, 2018.

Mr. Frotten comes to the Municipality from the Municipality of Argyle where he had advanced through the organization to the position of Municipal Clerk over the past 6 years. During this time, he gained experience in a range of responsibilities inherent in a small progressive municipal organization.

Mr. Frotten states “I am excited to join the Council and Staff of the Municipality of Barrington and I look forward to working with them to complete important projects and seek new opportunities that will grow the municipality.”

Prior to his municipal experience, Mr. Frotten filled the role of Coordinator for the 33rd Acadian Games. Aside from his work experience, Chris has been an active volunteer in his community serving in leadership roles in a range of non-profit organizations.

Warden Nickerson states “We are looking forward to having Chris join the Municipality and assume the role of CAO. His competency will be of great assistance as our organization proceeds through our Strategic Plan.”
