The Town Manager and the Superintendent of the Watertown Public Schools are pleased to announce the appointment of Ms. Lori Kabel to the position of Director of Public Buildings.  Ms. Kabel served as a Civil Engineer Lieutenant Colonel (retired) in the United States Air Force for over 22 years, where her primary responsibility was to manage the facilities of several air force bases across the globe.  Ms. Kabel received a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Clarkson University, an M.B.A. from Wilmington College, and an M.S. in Emergency Management from Richmond University.


Ms. Kabel’s previous experiences make her more than qualified to become the Director of Public Buildings in Watertown, and she will be instrumental in finalizing the plan to jointly maintain and oversee both municipal and school buildings.  One of Ms. Kabel’s many past work experiences that demonstrated her ability to excel in this newly created municipal/school position was her leadership of a multi-disciplinary team to refine program development for eight U.S. Air Force bases.  Throughout the interview process, Ms. Kabel consistently impressed all members of the interview committees, and we are pleased that Ms. Kabel will be starting officially on September 26.   


Please join us in welcoming Lori to the team!
