On Monday, March 9, the Johns Creek City Council unanimously approved the appointment of Ed Densmore as City Manager.
Densmore emerged as the top candidate for the position after a nationwide search that began last June when the city hired Strategic Government Resources (SGR), a firm specializing in the recruitment of municipal employees. The Mayor and SGR identified Ed Densmore as the final candidate to lead the city in oversight of strategic programs, teams, and services.
"I am honored that the Mayor and City Council have entrusted me to serve as Johns Creek’s next city manager,” incoming City Manager Densmore said. “Johns Creek is a unique community with engaged residents, flourishing neighborhoods, and a thriving business sector. I look forward to continuing to be a part of this community in this new roll and working with the City’s elected officials, management team, and staff to deliver high quality services."
Ed Densmore served as the acting City Manager for the past eight months and holds the distinction of being the city’s first and only police chief, a role he has held for the last 11 years. As police chief, Densmore launched the Johns Creek Police Department (JCPD) in 2008 and prior to that served as police chief for the City of Alpharetta. Densmore holds a B.S. in Criminal Justice from Michigan State University and is a graduate of the Command College at Columbus State University and the FBI National Academy.
