Establishing a Respected Governing Environment

From an organizational and senior management perspective, Chris deserves much credit in establishing a respected governing environment in the City of Brookhaven. We both came to a three-year old city with few established processes, little strategic focus, and devoid of any organizational culture. We also came to a City with a new Mayor and City Council with no prior elected official experience and on the backside of a political scandal. In just over six years, Brookhaven has become a recognized high-performing city with superior leadership, a stable and productive governing body, and a leader in innovative program and policy development. We could not have achieved this level of success without the many years of experience Chris brought to the table and Chris’ courage to speak up and address deficiencies and risks.
