The lasting legacy of Senior Deputy County Executive Fred Jarrett 

At the Executive’s Performance Excellence Awards, King County Executive awarded the Executive’s Leadership Excellence Award to Senior Deputy County Executive Fred Jarrett for being the driving force behind the County’s Lean and continuous improvement work over the last nine years. 

He also announced that going forward, this award will be known as the Fred Jarrett Leadership Excellence Award in honor of Jarrett’s legacy in King County’s best-run government journey.  

Jarrett is retiring this year and leaves behind a lasting legacy not only at King County but across Washington state. We spoke to a few of his friends and colleagues for a short video to learn more about his impact.
