MENIFEE – The Menifee City Council has appointed Rob Johnson as city manager. Johnson, 44, took over as interim city manager in November 2012 and was named city manager on Feb. 19, nearly 16 months later.
“Rob Johnson’s leadership has set the tone, set the pace, and has changed the organizational culture at Menifee City Hall by improving morale. He has executed nearly every strategic vision that this Council has asked him to implement in the last 16 months,” said Mayor Scott Mann. “Under his leadership, the city adopted its first ever General Plan, created and funded ‘Menifee Moving,’ the five-year Capital Improvement Project Plan, implemented the Economic Development and Business Incentives Plans, and increased general fund revenues in the process. Rob will have many successful years in Menifee.”
Johnson’s career at Menifee began in September 2009 as a senior management analyst. He worked on key assignments in different city functions including economic development, community services, community improvement, communications and special events.
He was also involved in negotiating the city’s franchise agreement and collaborating with many non-profit and community based organizations.
In addition to Menifee, Johnson’s 14-year municipal career includes key administrative and management positions with the cities of Oceanside, Murrieta and Corona.
