Glendora Hires New City Manager

Riverside Chief Financial Officer Adam Raymond is moving to Los Angeles County to serve as the top administrator for the City of Glendora. The City Council announced his selection Wednesday following an extensive recruitment search led by Peckham & McKenney.

Raymond’s contract stipulates an annual salary of $209,000. He begins his new job Sept. 4.

“The City Council is impressed with Mr. Raymond’s background, financial acumen, innovative ideas and talents, and government experience, which will bring a tremendous amount of value to the City of Glendora and will help navigate our community through many of the challenges we will face in the future,” said Mayor Mendell Thompson.

That experience includes work for the cities of San Bernardino, Rancho Palos Verdes, and Riverside, where Raymond served as Deputy Chief Information Officer before being promoted to CFO. Prior to his municipal work, he was also employed by a local auditing firm. He earned his Master’s degree in Public Administration from California Baptist University and a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting from the University of La Verne.

Glendora’s last city manager, Chris Jeffers, had been at the helm since 2007. He informed the city last year that he wished to allow his contract to expire
