Her promotion to emergency communications manager was effective June 3.
Naperville Fire Department Deputy Chief Amy Scheller. Scheller has held several management positions within the Naperville Fire Department since starting as a firefighter/paramedic in 1998. She most recently held the position of division chief and was sworn in as the department's first female deputy chief in April.

"Naperville is fortunate to retain quality employees, sometimes for their entire careers," said City Manager Doug Krieger.

While the above-mentioned positions were vacated due to retirements and promotions, one additional leadership position recently filled was the result of restructuring at the Naperville Police Department. The newly-created position of deputy director of administrative services returns the department to three divisions – patrol, investigations and administrative services – and oversees non-sworn personnel in emergency communications, records, public safety information technology, accreditation and crime analysis. The deputy director position was filled in April by:
Naperville Police Department Deputy Director Russell Matson. Matson joined the Naperville Police Department as the department's newest division director after more than 20 years with the Elgin Police Department, where he started as a crime analyst and most recently held the position of director of administration.
"Filling leadership roles is a particularly important task, as these are the individuals who will set the tone and expectations for the employees in their departments," Krieger said. "We strive as a City to hire the best of the best to ensure that the level of service our residents enjoy is maintained while also taking data-driven and innovative approaches to problems to enhance our community's future. I have no doubt that these six individuals will contribute greatly to Naperville's successes in years to come."
