Lafayette Chief Administrative Officer Dee Stanley has announced that he has accepted the position of Vice President at SIDES & Associates.  They handle advertising, public relations and project management for many businesses.

Stanley will start his position with SIDES after his final day with Lafayette City-Parish Government on January 4, 2016.

Stanley says,

"I have learned a lot and have loved every day as the chief non-elected administrator of the greatest community and parish in the country.  The opportunity to work at SIDES allows me to continue to help local businesses grow. I have watched Larry Sides and Kathy Ashworth make their agency one of the most respected advertising, communications, public affairs and project management firms in the nation. SIDES works in places like Cedar Rapids, Iowa and for Washington, D.C., but the center of their business is still i our hub city, Lafayette.  They are partners in the strategic planning, positioning and success of their clients and have also developed a reputation as the leading disaster and recovery communications firm in the country.  I'll miss the work I have been doing, and I know I will love the work ahead."

Dee Stanley became Lafayette's Chief administrator in 2004 after his appointment by Lafayette City Parish President Joey Durel.
