Josh Wright grew up in the East Valley, and said moving to Chandler and starting his new job as assistant city manager feels like coming home.
“I’ve always admired the city of Chandler,” said Wright, who has been the town manager of Wickenburg since 2011. “They have excellent leadership at all levels. It’s a very high-performing group. It’s an outstanding opportunity both professionally and personally.”
Although the details of his duties are still being fine-tuned, the assistant city manager generally oversees and provides guidance to city department heads and division managers to ensure the policies and goals of the city manager and city council are achieved in a timely and professional manner.
