City manager

Randy Hemann

The town of Mooresville has hired a new town manager.

Randy Hemann, currently the assistant city manager for High Point, will become the new Mooresville manager on Sept. 16.

Mooresville Mayor Miles Atkins made the announcement following a closed session of the Mooresville Board of Commissioners Monday night.

Mooresville’s manager David Treme announced earlier this year that he planned to retire and, shortly after that announcement, Treme took medical leave. Assistant Town Manager Ryan Rase has been acting manager since Treme left on medical leave.

Hemann has been in his position in High Point since 2015. Prior to that he was city manager in Oxford and has held several positions leading economic and downtown redevelopment throughout North Carolina.

“Randy is a results-oriented leader who has spent his career serving and revitalizing communities,” Atkins said. “He brings strong leadership, communication and organizational skills to this task. As a credentialed manager through the International City Managers Association, Randy has demonstrated his ability to lead, guide and inspire communities to achieve their best. We are looking forward to serving with him in Mooresville.”

Hemann has a bachelor’s degree in political science from Marshall University and a master’s degree in public administration from East Carolina University. Married with one son, Hemann enjoys many outdoor activities including fly-fishing, kayaking, camping and mountain biking.
