Chandler City Council to appoint Marsha Reed as City Manager

Marsha Reed will be named Chandler’s City Manager, replacing Rich Dlugas who retired in June 2015. The City Council will vote on the terms of an employment contract for the appointment at its April 14 meeting, marking the completion of a national recruitment.
“Marsha has done an exceptional job in her role as Acting City Manager,” Mayor Jay Tibshraeny said. “As the City Council reviewed the current candidate selection, it quickly became evident she was perfectly qualified to assume the role on a full-time basis. I look forward to working with Marsha and her team as we continue to move Chandler forward.”

Reed has been Acting City Manager since June 2015 and served as Assistant City Manager since joining Chandler in April 2013. She serves as the City’s chief administrative officer responsible for all City departments.
“Chandler is an award winning city with a well-earned reputation for excellence,” Reed said. “I’m excited to take on this leadership role at the City as we build upon our impressive successes and continue to provide professional service delivery.”

Reed previously worked for the City of Lubbock, Texas, for 20 years serving as Chief Operating Officer, Director of Public Works and in several engineering capacities. She also held engineering and transportation planning positions at the Lubbock District of the Texas Department of Transportation for 10 years.

Reed is a two-time graduate of Texas Tech University obtaining her bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering in 1988 and her master’s degree in Public Administration in 2000. She is a licensed professional engineer in the States of Arizona and Texas and is a current member of the Arizona City Managers Association and the Maricopa Association of Governments Management Committee.
