The city of Clovis appointed Andrew Haussler as the new community and economic development director Thursday.
City Manager Rob Woolley announced the promotion, which will take effect July 1. Haussler has been the interim director since the retirement of Tina Sumner last year.
“My biggest goal is to see jobs come to Clovis,” Haussler said. “I want to see our businesses flourish, our communities flourish and our neighborhoods flourish.”
He will directly oversee development programs meant to promote economic and community growth.
For the past decade, Haussler worked in city government in growth and development.
Haussler served as deputy city manager since early 2015, and also has seven years experience as the city’s housing program manager. He serves on several community-centered development boards, including the California Association for Economic Development.
“Andrew brings fresh ideas, a unique perspective, a collaborative attitude, and a passion for Clovis to the position,” Woolley said.
