When searching for the next Town Administrator, the Town of Timnath leadership team was looking for someone with the right mix of experience, leadership, and, just as importantly, someone that felt right for Timnath.

After a national search that spanned several months, Aaron Adams rose to the top of the list. Aaron begins his tenure as Town Manager on January 11.

“Timnath is a great community with so much potential,” said Aaron. “This is an exciting time for Timnath, so from a professional standpoint, I can’t wait to get started and be a part of this community’s future.”

Aaron was drawn to Timnath for the small-town living with close proximity to other Northern Colorado cities. Aaron and his family have been fortunate to visit Colorado in the past (they have family that lives in the Denver area). He’s excited to get his family settled, his kids into the local schools, and start participating in the activities they enjoy. He’s confessed that his family fell in love with all that Colorado has to offer for those living here.

“We love the outdoors and hiking, so my family and I are looking forward to exploring the local trails.”

Aaron comes to Timnath from Knoxville, Iowa, where he’s been for over six years, most recently as the City Manager. During his time with the City of Knoxville, he managed more than 100 full and part-time employees and a budget of $18 million annually. Before Knoxville, Adams served as a Senior Budget Analyst for the City of Mesa, Arizona, and as the Financial Analyst/Innovation Officer for Navajo County, Arizona.

Aaron was drawn to the Town Manager role because he’s passionate about communities and improving the quality of life. Aaron sees that with Timnath, where the sky is the limit.

“My hope is that I will be able to keep all the good things that are happening in Town going. I also hope to find ways to make positive changes to the Town organization and the Timnath community at large as we move forward.”

Adams understands that Timnath is in a period of growth and change and is excited to lead the Town forward. While change can be challenging, he feels that success depends on building upon the best parts of the past while working toward a future that stays authentic to Timnath’s character.

“I know that initially, listening will be more important than speaking. I really want to hear from the elected officials, staff, and the community at large.”
