After 16 years of dedicated service in San Marcos, Assistant City Manager Steve Parker has accepted the position of City Manager for the City of Seguin.
“When you have exceptional people on your executive team, it’s rewarding and bittersweet to see them move forward in their career,” said City Manager Bert Lumbreras. “Steve has been an integral part of the success of San Marcos and he will continue to provide his leadership, insight and depth of experience as he leads his team in Seguin. We’re excited to be able to continue to work with him on regional initiatives.”
In his role as Assistant City Manager in San Marcos, Parker oversees the Community & Economic Development departments including Engineering/CIP, Planning & Development Services and Library, General Services including the Airport, Fleet and Transit operations, and Public Services. Parker has served in this capacity since 2012 and has worked at the City for 16 years total. Prior to becoming Assistant City Manager, he served as Assistant Director of Finance and was promoted to Director of Finance in 2008.

He is a member of the Government Finance Officers Association of Texas, the International City/County Management Association, Texas City Management Association and served on the Alliance Regional Water Authority Board of Directors.
