Town hires economic development director/town manager
Updated on: 04.01.14

Scott Rudd was so thrilled about his new job, he was almost speechless.

"My mind is just racing right now, I'm sorry," he said in response to a reporter's question about his background. "I'm just so excited to get started here, kind of looking forward rather than backwards."

At a special meeting April 1, the Nashville Town Council offered him the position of economic development director/town manager. Twenty-four people applied for the new, full-time job. 

No one has worn the mantle of Nashville town manager since 2004. The economic development title is a new one.

Rudd's responsibilities will include serving as chief administrative officer for the town, overseeing the public works departments but not elected officials or police.

He also will help attract new businesses and new grants, work with residents and business owners to address common concerns, and manage projects that will increase the town's economic and tax base.

His first project, though, will be marshalling Nashville's Stellar Communities application, in partnership with the Stellar steering committee. The town is one of six finalists for two Stellar Communities awards, worth millions.

Until Monday, Rudd was working as associate director at Waycross Camp and Conference Center in northern Brown County. He started that job in 2007, after moving back home from Colorado. He was born and raised here.
