District 113A names new director of operation

LEMONT – Pat Crean was hired as District 113A's director of operations after being approved by the board of education Wednesday.

Crean will start working on Friday. He replaces Pam Mazurek, who retired at the end of June.

According to a school news release, Crean most recently worked as supervisor of building and grounds for Dolton School District 149.

He has an associate of applied science in construction technology, holds a commercial driver’s license and is currently completing the facilities management designation program through the Illinois Association of School Business Officials, according to the release.

When starting the search process, district administrators and the board wondered whether they would be able to find a qualified candidate to fill the director of operations position, which was a combination of the previous director of transportation and director of building and grounds positions.

If a qualified candidate had not been found, the district was considering splitting the job again and hiring two people, though it would have cost more money.
