Town Manager

Town of Lexington, Massachusetts

Lexington, MA (33,000 pop.), steeped in American history and considered by many historians to be the “Birthplace of American History” is seeking a proactive and progressive community leader, committed to excellence, to serve as its next Town Manager. In addition to its rich history, Lexington is a diverse and vibrant community with one of the top ranked school systems in the country. Having maintained its small town charm, yet located along the Rte. 128/Rte. 2 corridor, just twelve miles from Boston, Lexington is home to a number of Fortune 500 high tech and life science corporations.  The Town is governed by a five member Board of Selectmen, Town Manager and Representative Town Meeting form of government. With the assistance of three Assistant Town Managers and the Senior Management Team, the Town Manager oversees a full service municipality with a town side operating budget of $111M (includes some shared school costs) and 310 FT employees. The stability of this community is evidenced by its AAA bond rating, thriving business community and the thirteen year tenure of its retiring Town Manager.  The successful candidate must have a Bachelor’s degree in a related field (Master’s preferred) and a minimum of ten years of progressively responsible experience in public administration, or an equivalent combination of education and demonstrated senior leadership experience.  The salary range to $200k plus an excellent benefit package is commensurate with this community’s expectation for continued excellence in town management.  Lexington is an equal opportunity employer.
