City of Moncton appoints new City Manager

January 25, 2017

MONCTON – Moncton Council has appointed Marc Landry as the new City Manager of the City of Moncton.  Landry will assume his new responsibilities April 18, 2017.

“This is an important leadership role within the municipality and we are delighted to have attracted broad interest from top candidates across the country,” says Mayor Dawn Arnold.  “Landry was selected for his deep municipal sector experience, his vision for delivering public value in the provision of municipal services and for his proven leadership in citizen-based processes.  We look forward to adding his leadership strength and expertise to our already great team, to continue to move Moncton forward.”

Landry has been the Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) of Beaumont, Alberta, the 7th fastest growing community in Canada, since January 2008.  Prior to moving to Alberta, Landry was the CAO of Bouctouche, New Brunswick for 5 ½ years.  Upon commencing that role, he was recognized as the youngest person to occupy a CAO position in Canada.  Landry is currently on the International City/County Management Association (ICMA) Board of Directors as one of their International Vice-Presidents, representing all city managers across Canada, and is the 2nd Vice-President of the Canadian Association of Municipal Administrators (CAMA).  He has also been involved in extensive municipal international work.

“Having the opportunity to work in the community that I was born and raised in is an absolute privilege.  It is an honour to return to the Moncton region after having spent many years gaining municipal experiences within the provinces of New Brunswick and Alberta, as well as around the world.  Working alongside my new colleagues to deliver on the priorities and achieving the vision that the Mayor and Council have set for the City of Moncton, is very exciting.  I look forward to working together to continue making this great city one of the best communities in Canada, and recognized across the world.”

Mayor Arnold and the four members of the Search Committee participated in the search process with support from Organization Consulting Limited and received over 70 applications from candidates across Can
