The City of Delray Beach contracted with Ralph Andersen & Associates, an executive search and consulting company with almost 50 years of experience, to conduct a nationwide search for a new city manager. The firm received interest from qualified professionals from around the country and has begun the process of refining their recommendations. 

“The fact that so many qualified candidates have thrown their hats into the ring speaks to how many people want to be a part of this great city,” Interim City Manager Neal de Jesus said. I am confident the right candidate will emerge through the city commission’s vetting process.”  

While the process is ongoing, city commissioners are pleased with the number of highly qualified professionals who have shown an interest in the position. 

As part of the selection process, the top candidates will attend a question and answer session prior to the city commissioners making their final selection.  

“The exceptional quality of these candidates is something to be optimistic about,” Mayor Shelly Petrolia said. “The right candidate will possess vitality and breadth of knowledge that will serve the city well.”
