Title: Olszewski Names Director of Permits, Approvals and Inspections

TOWSON, MD – County Executive Johnny Olszewski today nominated Michael Mallinoff to serve as the Director of Permits, Approvals and Inspections, which oversees the development and use of land in Baltimore County.

“I’m proud of our efforts to create an innovative and thoughtful leadership team as our work to build a better Baltimore County continues,” Olszewski said. “Michael Mallinoff brings decades of management experience and shares my passion for expanding accountability and transparency across our government. I know he will be an invaluable addition to our administration.”

Mallinoff joins Baltimore County after mostly recently working to reform financial operations for the City of Mbeya, Tanzania, with Enabling Growth Through Investment and Enterprise (ENGINE). ENGINE is a partnership between the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Volunteers for Economic Growth Alliance (VEGA), and the Executive Service Corps (IESC), and works to increase private-sector investment and promote economic growth in Tanzania.

Mallinoff previously served as County Administrator for Charles County, where he was responsible for the day-to-day operations of County Government. He has also served as Chief Operating Officer of the State of Maryland’s Department of Information Technology, City Manager for the City of Annapolis, and Manager of the City of Newport, Rhode Island. Mallinoff holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland and a J.D. from the University of Baltimore.

He will join the Olszewski administration effective May 6, 2019, replacing acting Director Mike Mohler who has served in the position since January 2, 2019. Mohler will return to his role as Administrator of the Board of Liquor License Commissioners.

“I’m very appreciative for the hard work of Acting Director Mohler, for his exemplary service to the people of Baltimore County throughout our transition process,” Olszewski added.
