Malibu Interim City Manager Steve McClary has been promoted to the permanent top administrator’s position. He succeeds former city manager Reva Feldman who resigned last year, alleging “personal and professional attacks” from a member of the city council.
McClary has held the interim role since April 2021. His new position took effect Friday. He was previously city manager of Ojai and assistant city manager for the city of Camarillo.
“Malibu is fortunate to have such a well-qualified professional to fulfill this difficult and important role," Mayor Paul Grisanti said in a news release. "Over the last year, Steve has been a pleasure to work with, and has shown his competence, leadership, demeanor and ability to build good relationships with staff, the Council and the community.”
“Over the past year as interim City Manager, I have developed a great affection for Malibu and its residents, and I look forward to working with the Council, community and staff to fulfill the goals of the City in a dedicated manner,” McClary said.
