Atlanta’s COO resigning as of Aug. 6, Mayor Reed announces
Geisler became COO early last year but has been with the city for nearly three years, serving earlier as chief financial officer of the Department of Watershed Management.
“I thank him for his service to city of Atlanta residents, visitors and employees,” Reed said in a prepared statement. “I wish him well in the next chapter of his career.”
Geisler succeeded Duriya Farooqui as COO when she left the city late in 2013 for a position in the private sector. Reed’s first COO was Peter Aman of Buckhead, who reportedly may be a candidate for mayor in the next election.
Deputy COO Kristin Wilson will serve as interim COO. Reed will announce a permanent successor to Geisler within the next 10 days.
