City Council Appoints Kathleen Gill as City Manager

City Newsflash News

The New Rochelle City Council has chosen Kathleen Gill to serve as New Rochelle’s next City Manager. Gill will take office on January 1, 2023, following the retirement at the end of this year of long-serving City Manager Chuck Strome. The Council’s selection completes a nationwide recruitment process that included interviews with multiple candidates.

Gill comes to her new position with an extensive record of service to New Rochelle, touching on nearly every aspect of municipal administration and with a particular depth of involvement in planning and development issues. She was first employed by the City in 1995 as Assistant Corporation Counsel, promoted to Deputy Corporation Counsel in 1996, Corporation Counsel in 2009, Chief of Staff in 2015, and Deputy City Manager – the role she currently holds – in 2022. During her varied career, she has also served as General Counsel to Iona College (now University) and in private legal practice.

 “I have known Kathleen for 27 years and have been consistently impressed by her intellect, energy, and determination to get things done,” said Mayor Noam Bramson. “She has been a valuable asset to the City government, with progressively larger responsibilities, and an unmatched depth and breadth of knowledge about municipal challenges and opportunities. For these reasons, Kathleen is well-positioned to extend New Rochelle's positive progress on multiple fronts. I look forward to working with her to ensure that the coming year – her first as City Manager and my last as Mayor – is successful, both for her new leadership team and for our community as a whole.”

“I am thrilled that the City Council has appointed Kathleen Gill as our next City Manager,” said New Rochelle City Manager Chuck Strome. “Kathleen has served at my side for many years as Corporation Counsel, Chief of Staff and Deputy City Manager and has the experience and expertise to lead the City into the future.  She has earned the respect of our staff as well as many community partners. I wish her the best of success in the years ahead.”

"I am honored to be selected as our next City Manager," said Kathleen Gill. "New Rochelle is dynamic, inclusive and forward-looking. I have always been grateful for the privilege of working and raising my family here. I look forward to continuing to advance the important initiatives already underway at Chuck’s direction and to build on this strong foundation. I’m thrilled to work collaboratively with and serve alongside Council, staff and our community partners as we make our New Rochelle the best it can be. I know the future is bright for our great city.”

Gill holds a Juris Doctor degree from Pace University Law School, a Master of Science in Urban Planning and Environmental Science from Rensselear Polytechnic University, and a Bachelor of Arts in Government from Skidmore College.
