Posted: Updated:

The Sparks City Council has confirmed Mayor Geno Martini's choice of Stephen W. Driscoll to be the next City Manager.

Council members and the mayor had been interviewing Driscoll along with Deputy City Manager for Community Services Neil Krutz for the city manager position.

Driscoll will now take over for current City Manager Shaun Carey when he retires in April.

"Steve Driscoll is a proven leader who has been a heartbeat away from the position of City Manager for more than a decade, and is well-equipped and suited to lead the City organization, and tackle the challenges that lie ahead," said Sparks Mayor Geno R. Martini.  "I have always appreciated Steve's leadership and depth of knowledge, and the Council and I look forward to working with him to continue to ensure that Sparks remains the special City it is today."

Prior to his work in local government, Mr. Driscoll held management positions in national companies in the retail, manufacturing and technology sectors.  He is a fourth generation Nevadan, and graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a degree in accounting and holds a Master's in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix.  Mr. Driscoll is recognized as a Credentialed Manager by the International City/County Managers' Association and he is a Certified Government Financial Manager.  Steve has been active in numerous local and national associations including serving as past president of the Nevada Local Government Managers' Association of Nevada.  Steve and his wife Carol live in Sparks and have two adult sons, Sean and Christopher.
