DUNWOODY, Ga. -- Dunwoody Mayor Mike Davis has selected Eric Linton to serve as the city's manager. The appointment follows a seven-month service. A vote is expected at the City Council's Dec. 8 meeting.

"We conducted a thorough search and ultimately selected Eric from a large list of experienced and extremely talented candidates," Davis said in a press release. "Eric is a highly skilled public administrator and government services manager with experience at the city and county level. Specifically, we were impressed with his veteran skills in planning, zoning and development as well as his experience with comprehensive planning. I am confident he will be a tremendous asset to our city and the right leader for our exceptional team of employees."

According to the press release, "Linton is a Credentialed Manager with the International City/County Management Association, a member of the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) and is active in the American Planning Association, Georgia Planning Association, the Georgia City-County Management Association and the Association County Commissioners of Georgia."

Linton said, "I am excited about the opportunity to serve the citizens of Dunwoody and help implement development and infrastructure improvements in line with community-driven plans and goals," said Linton. "I grew up just outside the Dunwoody city border and attended Chamblee High School so I am very familiar with the area's character, history and tradition. It's a homecoming for me in a way and I'm looking forward to providing strategic and effective ideas to help the city succeed."

Linton holds a Masters in Planning and also a Bachelor of Science in Management, Operations Management, both from Georgia Tech.
