New Town Manager Hired

Mayor David Leake is very pleased to announce the appointment of Kimberly L. Murray, CEcD, AIPC as the new Town Manager. The Town Council unanimously confirmed Murray’s appointment at the Town Council meeting on Monday, November 7th after several months’ search and receiving over thirty applications. Ms. Murray assumed the office on November 14, 2016.

Murray most recently served as the Economic Redevelopment Director for the City of Winchester and the Executive Director for the Economic Development Authority of the City of Winchester overseeing the City’s economic development programs and redevelopment initiatives. Prior to her work in Winchester she served as Economic Development and Planning Manager for the Town of Strasburg. Before coming to Virginia in 2013, Murray served several years in municipal and state government in Vermont before relocating to Virginia with her family. She has twenty years of public service experience in the fields of economic development, planning, transportation, tourism, and downtown revitalization. She is a Certified Economic Developer through the International Economic Development Council and Certified Planner through the American Institute of Certified Planners and holds a Master’s degree in Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Florida.

“It is an honor and privilege to serve the Town Council and the residents of Haymarket. I’m really excited for what the future holds for Haymarket and committed to assist the leadership,” said Murray. “What a unique opportunity Haymarket has in its location to capitalize on the growth and activity around it, to preserve and foster the small town charm Haymarket is known for yet anticipate and plan for the remaining development that will occur to align with that vision. We have something really special here, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to play a role in the Town’s next chapter.”

“We are fortunate to have found someone whose record of initiative and vision is a great fit with the Town Council’s hopes for the community,” Haymarket Mayor David Leake said. “Her professionalism, integrity, communication and leadership skills stood out and impressed the Council as well as her extensive experience in municipal government. We took our time to find the candidate that will help the Council provide the organizational leadership and structure we feel is a priority. We are confident Kimberly will help us meet our goals and work closely with our residents and businesses.”
