Ridgewood names new village manager; first woman to hold the post permanently

THE RECORD

RIDGEWOOD – It has been six months since former Village Manager Ken Gabbert’s unceremonious dismissal, and in that time, the village council has been vetting candidates for his replacement.

That search ended earlier this week with the selection of Roberta Sonenfeld.

Sonenfeld, 59, will likely be formally appointed as Ridgewood’s next top administrator when the council meets next Wednesday night.

Sonenfeld, a village resident for 17 years with three decades of experience as upper management for a number of different financial institutions, said she is “ecstatic” about the new post and ready to hit the ground running March 31.

“My primary motivation is rooted in the desire I have to enhance the town and its financial stability,” said Sonenfeld. “I came across a posting on Facebook this week that said ‘It’s a beautiful thing when a passion and a career come together.’ That pretty much sums it up for me.”
