MIAMI – Miami commissioners unanimously approved Miami Mayor Francis Suarez’s nominee for the city manager who will be managing the $1.7 billion budget.
Suarez announced Monday morning he had nominated Arthur “Art” Noriega, the chief executive officer of the Miami Parking Authority, for the job.
“I am confident that my experience will help us meet our collective goals,” Noriega said in a statement, adding that he has dedicated decades to “achieving operational efficiency” and “promoting public and private sector partnerships.”
Suarez said Noriega has “strong expertise” in urban development and a “wealth of institutional knowledge."
Before serving as the head of the MPA, Noriega was vice president of the Carlisle Group, where he worked with local municipalities statewide to create key urban development projects. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of South Florida and graduated from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University.
