Following a unanimous vote at their Monday meeting, the Town Council announced that Wade Carroll will serve as the new Town Manager for the Town of Westlake. Carroll brings with him decades of municipal government experience.
This announcement follows an extensive nationwide search led by Mosaic Public Partners. Numerous applications were submitted with Town Council narrowing it down to a handful of semifinalists. Each applicant for the position was evaluated based on their experience, accomplishments, abilities, and knowledge of government management.
Carroll was formerly the Town Manager for the Town of Trophy Club. He has been with Trophy Club since 2017 and also served as Interim Town Manager, Assistant Town Manager, and Fire Chief.
Before his time in Trophy Club, Carroll was Deputy Chief of the Southlake Fire Department. He was with the City of Southlake for 18 years. He holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from American Military University as well as several leadership certifications.
"We are excited to welcome Wade to the Town of Westlake," said Mayor Sean Kilbride. "From the first time I met him, I knew he would be a good fit for us. He brings a wealth of municipal knowledge and experience and is a true professional who will lead our Town in the right direction."
Mr. Carroll is expected to begin his role as Town Manager later this spring.
