Town Manager Search Committee

The Select Board will be holding interviews for Town Manager beginning at 9:00AM April 27th in the Town House Hearing Room, 22 Monument Square. The schedule is as follows:

9:00 a.m. - Kerry Lafleur

10:30 a.m. - John Coderre

12:00 p.m. - Steve Crane


After 26 years, Chris Whelan, Concord’s Town Manager, will be retiring. The Town Manager Search Committee has begun the process of finding a replacement and wants your input. 

The committee has hired the consulting firm of Municipal Resources, Inc.(MRI) to assist the committee with this process. They have significant experience in assisting town searching for Town Managers and other senior personnel. 

Please join us at one of our upcoming public forums to share your thoughts on the personal attributes and professional skillsets you think are important for Concord’s next town manager.  We would also like to hear about any challenges, particularly those not already identified in the Town’s “Envision Concord- Bridge to 2030” report that you believe will be important for the new town manager to address.
