After an extensive national search, we are excited to welcome Aaron Adams as our new Timnath Town Manager. Aaron comes to us after working for 6 years in Knoxville, Iowa, an organization with 100 full and part-time employees. Prior to Knoxville, Aaron served as a Senior Budget Analyst for the City of Mesa, Arizona, and as the Financial Analyst/Innovation Officer for Navajo County, Arizona.

Aaron emerged as the most qualified candidate for the position after a multi-step recruiting effort conducted by a national search firm. More than 80 highly qualified candidates applied, but Aaron’s work experience, prestigious education (he graduated from one of the top Public Administration programs in the Country) and quality of character quickly moved him to the top of our list.

Your Town Council is excited about the leadership and experience Aaron brings to our Town organization. The town manager role is the professional administrative position responsible for the overall operation of the Town. In this role, Aaron will help staff develop and implement policies and procedures consistent with the vision, mission, strategic plan and budget outlined by Town Council.

If you haven’t yet, please welcome Aaron to our community. He resides in town and is looking forward to finding his favorite local spots to frequent with his family.

2021 is teeming with possibilities. We have the budget, the leadership, and the staff to accomplish the goals set by our community. We are moving forward with continually improving this community that we love.
