Everett recently took a step aimed at improving the efficiency of its municipal operations when Mayor Carlo DeMaria named Omar Easy to fill the newly created post of director of organizational assessment.
Easy, a former National Football League running back and until recently assistant vice principal at Everett High School, is responsible for creating job performance standards for city employees. His hiring is part of an ongoing initiative by the city to enhance the effectiveness of its services.
An Everett High School graduate, Easy played football at Penn State and later for the Oakland Raiders and the Kansas City Chiefs. Prior to his five-year stint as vice principal at the high school, he worked as an academic adviser and mentor for student-athletes, and later as director of player personnel and development, at Penn State; and as the director of the academic support center at Everett High School. He is also founder and director of the EasyWay Foundation, which benefits asthmatic children and supports other children’s charities.
