Del Mar’s search for a new City Manager is underway with applications due October 20. Using feedback from the City Council and suggestions from interested citizens, a profile of the perfect candidate has emerged.

The ideal candidate should have the following qualities:

• Creative problem solver and out-of-the box strategic thinker.

• Engaged with residents and the business community.

• Good listener with a sense of humor: someone who is polished and calm under pressure.

• Ability to maintain and lead a high performing and proactive executive management team.

• Fair and ethical. Politically savvy, yet apolitical. Maintains neutrality in Council-Manager relations.

• Open and welcomes feedback.

• Strong finance background: and experience with complex municipal budgets.

• Experience working with local chambers or similar organizations, engaging the business community, and downtown revitalization.

• Efficient manager of time and resources, clear and succinct oral, and written communication skills.

• Good understanding of the relationships and interactions among California’s governing structures.
