Assistant City Manager


Listing Summary

The City of Tucker was established in 2016 and has a long history of community engagement and volunteerism. It was formed as a limited services city and expanded the services to include public works in July of 2023. Since its inception, the City has prioritized the revitalization of the aging infrastructure and is poised to deliver a long list of transformative capital projects including a city-wide trail system, the renovation of a sports complex, the building of a town green, the revitalization of many parks and the implementation of many road safety projects. Tucker’s proximity to Atlanta, stable organization and creative approach to growth make it well positioned to emerge as the most desirable location in the metro.

The new Assistant City Manager will report directly to the City Manager and join a diverse and high-functioning executive team in implementing the City Council’s policies and provide strategic direction and oversight to City departments and functions. The Assistant City Manager acts as an extension of the City Manager’s leadership, and it is paramount that the working relationship with the City Manager be one of deep trust, transparency, and collaboration. While members of the City Manager’s office have assigned areas of responsibility, a team-based approach that includes functional partnerships with city staff and contracted, embedded vendors to achieve results is important to the organization’s success. Specific departmental assignments and responsibilities will be determined based on the background and strengths of the successful candidate and those of the existing executive team.

The successful candidate must be people-focused, exhibit an exemplary customer service approach, and have a strong commitment to public service. The ability to develop and leverage authentic relationships with internal and external stakeholders is critical. The successful candidate will exemplify the City’s organizational values of responsiveness, integrity, respect, collaboration, honesty, stewardship, and initiative.

The successful candidate will also demonstrate strengths to include:

  •      Energy and influence in building a strong culture throughout the organization.
  •      Talent in bringing ideas to life.
  •      Willingness to act boldly and creatively to achieve organizational goals and objectives.
  •      Commitment to excellence with focus on strengths and talents of others
  •      Resilience in the face of unexpected community or organizational events
