“There’s value and importance in tracking progress and holding ourselves accountable to the community,” said City Manager Raymond Lee. “The director adds a layer of transparency to our efforts to deliver on what we set out to accomplish. As the city continues to grow, this position adds depth to our organization to enhance our ability to identify what we can and should be measuring and reporting out to the public.”
Priddy graduated from Colorado State University with a bachelor’s degree in Psychology. She earned an MBA from the Daniels College of Business at the University of Denver. Her first day with the city will be Feb. 27.
“As a lifelong resident of Northern Colorado, I couldn't be more thrilled to join the City of Greeley at such an exciting time of growth and innovation,” Priddy said. “I am committed to maintaining Greeley's operational and civic excellence through the strategic use of data and analytics to strengthen its performance. I look forward to working with the entire City of Greeley staff to improve the experience of the city's residents, visitors, and businesses.”
