Recent Promotions of County Employees Prompts New Hire
The Morris County Board of County Commissioners has announced the appointment of Vincent Vitale as the county’s new Director of Communications.
Mr. Vitale, who started Jan. 17, is filling a vacancy created earlier this month when former Director Brian T. Murray was officially appointed Assistant County Administrator. Mr. Murray filled a post vacated by Deena Leary, who formally took the helm as Morris County Administrator earlier this month after being named by the Commissioners this past summer as the successor to retiring Administrator John Bonanni.
Before joining Morris County, Mr. Vitale was Communications Officer for Randolph Township, where he facilitated township communications by working closely with the Randolph Township Council, township departments and committees to promote local news and events. He also was Supervisor of Broadcasting and Communications for Sussex County Community College, leading coordination for the Communications program and managing the college’s radio and TV stations.
A resolution to hire Mr. Vitale was unanimously approved by the Morris County Board of Commissioners after the administration advertised the post and then interviewed and evaluated many applicants this past fall.
Mr. Vitale earned a Master of Business Administration degree from William Paterson University in 2011. He holds undergraduate degrees from Rutgers College in Communication and Psychology. He resides in Andover Township with his wife and two sons.
