Mali Dyck selected as new Nevada County assistant CEO

Mali Dyck, currently serving as Nevada County’s interim Human Resources director, was named Friday as the new assistant CEO.

Dyck, 38, will step into her new role on Nov. 5. Her salary will be $168,134.

“As a 15-year resident of Nevada County, I’m honored to serve this community as the next county assistant CEO,” Dyck wrote in an email.

CEO Alison Lehman, who became the county’s top administrator in September, chose Dyck for the job. Lehman said she’s looking forward to her joining the county’s executive team.

“With over six years of experience and knowledge of Nevada County operations, and having served as interim deputy CEO for over a year, her skillset will help to continue to drive the county forward on important board priorities such as economic development and housing,” Lehman wrote in an email.

Dyck has worked in the private and nonprofit sectors. Most recently she’s served with the county as a program manager with Eligibility and Employment Services, interim deputy CEO and interim Human Resources director.

Dyck has a bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of Nebraska. She’s currently working toward a master’s of public administration at California State University, Northridge. She’s a graduate of the Nevada County Community Leadership Institute, has completed the executive credential program of the California State Association of Counties and is certified in project management.

“I look forward to leading the implementation of Alison’s vision as CEO as it relates to improved employee and civic engagement as well as the Board of Supervisors’ objectives and vision for the county such as their policy direction related to housing, economic development, wildfire prevention and response, and long-term cannabis regulations as well as maintaining a focus on fiscal stability and core county services,” Dyck said.
