The City of San Marcos has selected Lauren Surley to serve as the Director of Communications and Intergovernmental Relations. Surley was chosen from a nationwide candidate pool of 63 applicants. 

Surley has 10 years of professional communications experience, most recently serving as the Vice President of Communications for the San Marcos Area Chamber of Commerce where she specialized in project management, internal and external communications, and developed and implemented effective communication strategies between the community and agencies ranging from local to federal representatives. Previously, Surley served as the City’s Community Outreach Coordinator and worked as a multimedia journalist covering Central Texas with an emphasis on San Marcos and Hays County.

“Lauren’s diverse experience and knowledge of San Marcos makes her a perfect fit for the role of Director of Communications and Intergovernmental Relations,” said Assistant City Manager Stephanie Reyes. “We’re excited to welcome her back to the City Team and look forward to the ideas she brings to ensure we reach all members of our community.”

Surley is a graduate of Texas State University and a 2021 graduate of the Leadership San Marcos program. 

“As a Texas State student I fell in love with San Marcos and the people who make up this wonderful community,” said Surley. “After graduating and moving away to start my professional career, my plan was to always come back and set roots here. I’m excited to rejoin the City and I’m committed to serving the community in this new role.”

Surley will start her position on October 25, 2021. For media inquiries, contact communicationsinfo@sanmarcostx.gov
