The City of Greeley is pleased to announce that Scott Magerfleisch has been selected to lead the city’s Information Technology department. Magerfleisch will join the city in August and be responsible for developing and implementing strategies that enable and empower Greeley to be a City Achieving Community Excellence. Magerfleisch will oversee the city’s IT budget of approximately $5 million and lead a dynamic team of 26 IT professionals.

“Scott’s work experience and leadership made him a standout candidate,” said Roy Otto, City Manager. “Our leadership team was impressed with Scott’s credentials, but more so, his commitment to enabling and driving business strategy and goals. He will bring a progressive and transformational leadership style to the city that will be critical in advancing the city’s internal systems and technology infrastructure,” added Otto. 

Magerfleisch, a veteran in the IT field, brings more than twenty-five years of experience from the private sector and municipal government.
