Los Gatos hired a new assistant town manager after a three-month search.
Katy Nomura’s first day is June 5, and she brings more than 10 years of experience with her to the role. She is replacing Arn Andrews, who resigned earlier this year for a position as assistant city manager in Mountain View.
Nomura most recently worked as a deputy city manager in Long Beach, where she focused on special projects related to homeless emergency efforts, sidewalk vending and food truck regulations.
“The town attracted many qualified candidates, and Ms. Nomura clearly demonstrated a track record of completing complex policy items for council consideration, working with other agencies on challenging issues and understanding the high customer service expectations for Los Gatos,” town manager Laurel Prevetti said in a statement. “Her technical and soft skills will serve the town well.”
Nomura is no stranger to the Bay Area. She worked for the city of Cupertino for 10 years, rising to the role of deputy city manager where she oversaw legislative affairs, economic development, sustainability, the Office of Communications and the Office of Emergency Management. She left Cupertino for the job in Long Beach, where she spent a little less than a year.
“It is a blessing to be welcomed to such a charming town where I formed many fond childhood memories,” Nomura said. “I am excited for the agility and high-touch nature of a smaller jurisdiction that will allow me to closely engage with the people that I serve. I look forward to joining the Los Gatos team and coming home to the Bay Area.”
In the last year, five senior-level staffers have left Los Gatos, including the town attorney, parks and public works director and finance director.
The salary range for an assistant town manager in Los Gatos is $168,540 to $227,529.
