Andy Garman appointed Nags Head town manager

At its September 1, 2021 meeting the Nags Head Board of Commissioners unanimously voted to appoint Andy Garman as the new town manager.

Garman, Nags Head’s deputy town manager, has been serving as the interim manager since June 2021, succeeding Greg Sparks, who filled in temporarily following the departure of former town manager Cliff Ogburn.

“Andy has worked diligently over the years for our community, steadily increasing his responsibilities and proving to our board that he is the right person for the position,” said Nags Head Mayor Ben Cahoon. “He understands not only what makes our town special, but also the unique challenges we face. We’re excited to work with him to lead our town into the future.”

A longtime Nags Head resident, Garman began his new position immediately.

“It’s been my privilege to live in Nags Head since 2003 and now it’s my honor to have the opportunity to be the town’s manager,” Garman said. “Nags Head enjoys the reputation of being a premier beach destination, but we’re more than that. We’re a unique, vibrant community with a long history of involved residents, forward-thinking elected officials, and talented employees. Over the years, we’ve been at the forefront of tackling complex coastal issues. I will certainly work to continue that tradition. I will also ensure that we are responsive to our residents, providing a high level of service and maintaining Nags Head’s great quality of life. It’s been rewarding to contribute to some of the Town’s recent accomplishments as part of the Nags Head team. I am looking forward to serving in this new capacity and continuing to build on our successes together.”

A graduate of Radford University and Virginia Tech, where he received a master’s degree in urban and regional planning, Garman started with Nags Head in 2002 as the town’s planner before serving as the Town of Duck’s director of community development for seven years. In 2014, Garman returned to Nags Head as the deputy town manager/planning and development director. Garman has been a certified planner with the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP) since 2000 and recently became a credentialed manager with the International City/County Management Association (ICMA-CM).
