Abe Amorós, Managing Director for the City of Reading, will being stepping down from the position February 11, according to a statement from the Mayor’s office Monday evening.
According to Mayor Morán, Amorós accepted a position as Chief Operating Officer for the PA League of Municipalities in Harrisburg, a non-profit, nonpartisan organization that advocates for Pennsylvania’s Third Class Cities, of which Reading is a member.
“For more than a year, I’ve enjoyed working with Abe as he has helped me move the City forward consistently with my top priorities of homeownership, workforce development, addressing crime and safety while strengthening our neighborhoods” said Morán.
“I’m pleased that he will only be one phone call away as Reading is an active member of the PML, which provides resources and training opportunities for local governments across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Having this resource available to us is reassuring as Abe has expressed his sincere interest to continue assisting the City in any way.”
Morán says Frank Denbowski, Chief of Staff, will serve in the interim as Managing Director. “Frank has my full faith in confidence as his institutional knowledge of Reading, along with his strong work ethic, will serve Reading well in the short term. He and Abe will work closely until the date of departure.”
Amorós was named Managing Director in October of 2020, following the departure of Pedro Cortés.
