Angelina Ruffin, once named by the NAACP as one of the 100 Most Influential Black Women in Philadelphia, will serve as the city’s new Director of Performance Management and Deputy Chief Administrative Officer.

Mayor Jim Kenney announced Ruffin’s hiring in a press release on Friday, saying, “Improving how the City measures and manages the performance of its many programs and services is a crucial focus of my Administration. I’m thrilled that Angelina Ruffin is bringing her years of experience to the task, and I’m confident the City will benefit from her efforts.”

In her new role, Ruffin will work to support and improve upon already existing performance management practices across departments citywide. She will also work to help design and implement performance management practices in departments developing new systems.

Previously, Ruffin worked as the Director of Performance Management for the Philadelphia Department of Public Health. She’s also served as a policy advisor for three of the state’s health secretaries at the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

Ruffin is on the board of Women Organized Against Rape and is a certified Anti-Violence Advocate.

“I’m excited to join the Kenney administration and look forward to partnering with leaders citywide to create a culture of quality and data driven policy,” Ruffin stated in the release.
