SUWANEE -- The Gwinnett County Board of Education has tapped a former district administrator to serve in the capacity of chief operations officer, a post which was vacated in November with the departure of longtime employee Jim Steele.
Daniel "Danny" Jardine will now lead the district's division of facilities and operations, which oversees facility planning and construction, fleet and grounds maintenance, building maintenance, environmental and supply services, risk management and transportation.
A professional with more than 30 years of experience in the design and construction industry, he will succeed Steele, who served as district COO for more than 36 years.
Jardine has experience in master planning, design, coordination and execution of educational facilities and other public sector projects in the design and construction industry.
In addition to his work in the private sector, Jardine was employed by both Gwinnett County Public Schools and Cobb County Schools.
