Glen Adams was named the Interim City Manager for the City of Martinsville. Current City Manager Leon Towarnicki’s retirement will take effect on August 1.
Adams, contracted by the Berkley Group, will serve as a bridge between City Managers while the nationwide search for a permanent replacement is underway.
With a commitment to Martinsville and its citizens, Adams expressed his enthusiasm for being part of the selection process to identify the ideal candidate who will continue the city’s progress.
“I am deeply honored to contribute to the City of Martinsville and its remarkable community, as I serve my role in the process to select the best person to move the City forward,” said Adams.
Adams brings more than 25 years of military experience and nearly 20 years of non-military management experience. He has previously held positions as City Manager for the City of Santa Fe, Texas, and as Interim City Manager for the Town of Purcellville, Virginia.
The Berkley Group has contracted Adams on a month-to-month basis for a minimum of three months, with the goal of filling the City Manager position by October.
