Gresham City Council hires Nina Vetter for City Manager position (Photo) - 05/03/21

GRESHAM, Ore. – Following a robust process, Gresham City Council hired Nina Vetter to serve as City Manager. Her first day will be June 28.

“Gresham will benefit from Ms. Vetter’s demonstrated experience with budgeting and implementing diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, as well as her commitment to leading with integrity and transparency,” said Gresham Mayor Travis Stovall. “After thoughtfully considering the priorities of our Council, the needs of our employees, and the input from the community, we believe that Ms. Vetter’s skills will be critical to moving us forward.”

Ms. Vetter has served as the Chief Administrative Officer/District Manager of the Pueblo West Metropolitan District, Colorado, since 2019. Nina has worked in local and federal government since 2009. In 2013, she was hired by the City of Colorado Springs, Colorado as a Senior Budget Management Analyst, and she quickly progressed to the role of Strategy, Performance and Contract Compliance Manager. She received her Master of Public Administration degree from Northern Illinois University and her Bachelor of Business Administration degree from George Washington University.

The community participated in the recruitment process in focus groups and through an online survey; their feedback helped develop the job description. The community also weighed in on key priorities Gresham’s City Manager will tackle, which include assessing and identifying long-term and sustainable funding sources, championing and implementing the City’s diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, and supporting key services such as housing, climate action and economic development.

“I am honored and excited to serve as Gresham’s City Manager. I look forward to joining Gresham and serving the City and community,” said Ms. Vetter.

Ms. Vetter was selected from a nationwide search that was narrowed down to three finalists. In addition to multiple interviews with City Council, the finalists participated in forums with City employees and the community. City staff and community members provided input on the interviews via an online survey.

City Council will vote to ratify the City Manager employment contract at their business meeting tomorrow, May 4, at 6 p.m.
