The Paradise Valley Town Council is pleased to announce that, after a nationwide search, it is conducting interviews with candidates that have been identified for the Town Manager position.

A competitive pool of candidates is now taking part in a series of interviews as well as reference and background checks.

The three candidates who will participate in interviews with Town officials this week are:

  • Matthew LeCerf, who served as Town Manager of Frederick, CO with prior positions in Maryville, MO and Kingsland, GA. He holds a Master of Public Administration degree from Valdosta State University.
  • Gary Neiss, who serves as Town Administrator of Carefree, AZ with prior positions in Scottsdale, AZ. He holds a Master of Environmental Planning degree from Arizona State University.
  • Mark Perkins, who serves as City Administrator of Creve Coeur, MO with prior positions in Blue Springs, MO and Roselle, IL. He holds a Master of Public Administration degree from the University of Kansas.

Town officials advertised that they are seeking a committed, highly professional, and highly competent individual who has a positive record of achievement and who exhibits a history of both integrity and building constructive, positive working relationships with internal and external stakeholders. Vice Mayor Jerry Bien-Willner said, “The Town Council has worked hard as a team to vet a pool of very qualified candidates up to this point and now we look forward to concluding this important process of identifying the best candidate to fit into our community and serve with excellence as the next Town Manager.”
