The Hallandale Beach Commission has selected Renee Crichton, the current deputy manager of Miami Gardens, as its newest leader.
The commission unanimously agreed to hire Crichton out of a field of four finalists to take over as city manager.
Crichton, who lives in Plantation, has a master’s degree from Florida Atlantic University in public administration.
It won’t be her first time in Hallandale Beach; she started her career there as an assistant to the city manager from 2000 to 2002.
Most recently, Crichton has been with the city of Miami Gardens, where she began as an assistant city manager in 2005. In 2008, she became the city’s deputy manager.
Crichton is replacing City Manager Mark Antonio, who will retire on June 29 after 25 years with the city. Antonio was paid $165,000 a year as manager. City Spokesman Peter Dobens said the city is now working out a salary and contract with Crichton.
