Posted On Friday September 02, 2022

The City of Cornwall announces Michael Fawthrop to the position of General Manager of Infrastructure and Municipal Works.  Mr. Fawthrop will assume this role effective October 3, 2022.

He joined the City of Cornwall in 2016 as the Division Manager of Infrastructure and was promoted to the Manager of Infrastructure and Municipal Works in 2021. 

“Michael has been instrumental in developing the City’s Asset Management Plans and long-term infrastructure planning,” said the City of Cornwall’s Chief Administrative Officer, Maureen Adams. “As a new member of the City’s Senior Team, Michael will continue to play a vital role in the budget process and Council’s Strategic Plan.”

Prior to joining the City of Cornwall, Mr. Fawthrop was a Municipal Engineer with WSP Consulting Engineers and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering from Queen’s University.

“I am extremely grateful for the opportunity provided to me by the City,” said Mr. Fawthrop. “I have been very fortunate to have worked with and learned from many talented individuals over the course of my career both in the City as well as in the private sector. It will be difficult to replace Bill de Wit who has led the department for the last number of years.”

“I am looking forward to the challenge and continuing to deliver effective services and infrastructure to our community working alongside our talented senior administration.”
