City COO’s

Turbulence in the corporate world led to concerns about a diminished workforce, so much so that some municipalities began planning for a worst-case scenario in which the region’s largest employes no longer existed. Three city managers discuss their roles in navigating the Great Recession, as well as the constant struggle of balancing their community needs versus the political will and popularity of investing in infrastructure. Chief operating officers Curt Walton of Charlotte, Ed Memmott of Spartanburg and Richard Pearce of Aiken join the conversation.
