Tampa Bay Water approves hire of new chief executive

Matthew Jordan is the new chief executive of Tampa Bay Water.

The three-county public utility's board voted unanimously Monday to hire Jordan, who will relocate from North Carolina. He starts July 8 and will earn $180,000 annually.

Jordan, 55, will replace Gerald Seeber, who is leaving after five years to become city manager in Temple Terrace. Tampa Bay Water is repairing its reservoir, thinking through its water supply plan for the next five years and working to re-establish public confidence in its operation.

Jordan will be the agency's third general manager since it was founded in 1998. In 2008, Jordan became the chief executive officer of the Cape Fear Public Utility Authority, which serves Wilmington and New Hanover County, N.C.
