Greensboro City Council
Greensboro, NC-- Greensboro has a new city manager and it's a familiar face.
At Tuesday night's city council meeting, the person already doing the job was given the job permanently.
The city of Greensboro is now managed by Denise Turner Roth. Roth was officially given the job after a 9-0 vote by city council. She has served as Interim city manager since December when former city manager Rashad Young left.
Roth came to Greensboro in 2008 and served as Assistant City Manager for Community Affairs and Communications.
According to a news release from the city, before joining the City of Greensboro, Roth served as vice president for governmental affairs at the Greensboro Partnership. At the Partnership, she played an integral role in the city's economic and legislative agenda and successfully lobbied the state for $60 million to establish the North Carolina A&T State and UNC Greensboro Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering.
Roth's career in public service began in Washington, DC. She started as a special assistant for legislative affairs in the office of Mayor Anthony Williams. She then transitioned to the role of public space manager for the District of Columbia Department of Transportation, where she secured and oversaw a $36 million revenue stream and managed public space access by major utility and telecommunication companies. She has also served as a district liaison and campaign manager for North Carolina Congressman Brad Miller.
