Fort Mitchell appoints Sharmili Reddy as new city administrator, after extensive search

The City Council of Fort Mitchell last night approved the hiring of Sharmili Reddy as their new city administrator. The position had been vacant since the first of the year and after undergoing an extensive search, Ms. Reddy was selected from a group of highly qualified candidates. Sharmili Reddy has served for ten years as a planning manager at the Planning & Development Services of Kenton County (PDS) and will begin her new job with the city in May.

“On behalf of the City Council, we look forward to having Sharmili Reddy join our leadership staff and bring fresh perspective to our day-to-day operations,” said Mayor Jude Hehman. “She is a very detail-oriented professional, bringing all the skills needed to handle the new development project at the old Drawbridge site, along with management of our city departments and budget,” added Hehman. Sharmili Reddy will become the first woman to hold the position of Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) for the City of Fort Mitchell.

Sharmili Reddy graduated from college in India and came to the United States to attend the University of Cincinnati where she received her Masters Degree in Community Planning.

“I am excited and ready to work with the new Fort Mitchell mayor and council members to implement the vision and goals they have set forth,” said Sharmili Reddy. “Fort Mitchell is such a unique and wonderful city and I am honored to have been selected as the new CAO. There is so much happening and I look forward to working with the great people who live and work in our community.”

While working at PDS, Sharmili Reddy has gained extensive experience working with elected officials, planning agencies, The NKY Chamber of Commerce, Tri-ED, SD#1 and OKI on a number of high level planning and zoning issues. Prior to moving to Northern Kentucky, she served as a senior planner for the Center Regional Planning Agency in State College, PA.

Sharmili Reddy was honored with the Emerging Leader award last week at the Outstanding Women of Northern Kentucky luncheon.

She resides in Fort Mitchell with her husband and son and loves to travel in her spare time.

“We have made Fort Mitchell our home and love the sense of community,” said Reddy.
