Len received his inspiration towards a career in public service through his father who was very active as a volunteer in summer baseball programs in the Borough of Norristown. Following Len's graduation from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Government and Public Administration in 1975, Len pursued a Post-Graduate degree at The American University in Washington D.C. Len received his Masters in Public Administration (MPA) in December of 1976.
Upon returning home from Washington D.C., Len received his first position in public management when he became the Assistant Borough Manager in Lansdale in the spring of 1977. In this position he assisted the Borough Manager in various projects. In the fall of 1979, he was appointed to the position of Manager of the Borough of Hatfield. In assuming this position, he became Hatfield Borough's first Manager. During his ten-year career in Hatfield, Len was responsible for having acquired many community development grants, reconstructed and managed the Borough's electric system, and improved the Borough's water and sewer systems.
In the fall of 1989, Len was chosen by the Board of Commissioner's to be Upper Gwynedd's Township Manager. While serving Upper Gwynedd Township, Len has helped to guide the Township through many projects and has advanced the services that affect the quality of life for the Township residents. Included in these projects is the completion of many highway and bridge improvements and the incorporation of the former Upper Gwynedd Sewer Authority into a department of the Township. Following this incorporation the Township has expanded and improved these facilities making it a state-of-the-art facility. The development of the Township's Parks and Recreation facilities and programs are amongst Len's more prideful accomplishments. All of the above have been done while managing the Township in a fiscally efficient and responsible manner.
Len is an active member of the International City Manager Association, the Montgomery County Consortium of Municipalities. He has also served on regional committees that involve the improvement of the quality of life in the North Penn area and Montgomery County.
