The 38-year-old from Kippenheim was elected by the local council.
(BZ). The 38-year-old Helena Gutbrod from Kippenheim will be the new main and building authority manager of the community of Ringsheim. The municipal council has elected the mother of two, the administration announced. She will officially take up her job on May 1st, but will continue to work temporarily in the town hall until then. Helena Gutbrod is the wife of the mayor of Kippenheim, Matthias Gutbrod.
After completing her training at the Mahlberg city administration and studying at the Kehl University of Public Administration, Gutbrod completed her master’s degree in personnel development at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern. The first professional positions were in the city administration of Freiburg and the Federal Agency for Real Estate Tasks. Gutbrod has been working in the main office of the District Office Emmendingen since 2008. Interrupted from parental leave, she was department head for organization and, among other things, responsible for the administrative office of the district council, the organization of the census, elections, occupational safety, the introduction of digitization measures in the district office and the management of the department with 13 employees.
Helena Gutbrod had already helped out the community of Ringsheim in the past few weeks after the surprising death of Jrgen Schwarz, according to the press release. “We have come to know and appreciate her,” explains Mayor Pascal Weber, “with Helena Gutbrod we have a committed employee and manager with extensive experience in full-time employment, in digitization and in personnel management.”
As the new incumbent explains, it was not initially intended to stay in Ringsheim permanently. “But I was very well received in the town hall, and I immediately enjoyed my work.” She can bring her broad experience to bear in the main office. In the next few months, Manfred Uhl, who is currently helping out in the town hall, will be working in the building department. “All in all, these are the best conditions.”
