City of Prospect Heights, Illinois (North Cook)
William Balling was selected to serve as the Interim City Administrator for Prospect Heights. WRB.LLC was called in at a time when the City had experienced multiple vacancies in the City Administrator position in 2014 as well as a vacancy in the Assistant to the Administrator position. In addition to an organizational assessment, it was important that the City agenda be advanced utilizing contemporary operating strategies and to restore the high employee morale that Prospect Height had previously grown accustomed. In addition WRB, LLC was selected to conduct the executive search for the selection of the permanent City Administrator, and called upon subcontractor, PopulusXP in Riverwoods, Illinois to assist in that phase of the engagement. The assignment which was a major success for the City ended in June 2015 with William Balling, receiving a special recognition Proclamation for the Mayor and a commemorative clock from the City Council for the work completed.
