Red Deer Mayor and City Council are pleased to announce the appointment of a new City Manager, Allan Seabrooke, starting May 13. Seabrooke most recently held roles as the Chief Administrative Officer and Commissioner of Community Services with the City of Peterborough. 

“I am honoured and excited to be selected as the new City Manager and to be part of the Red Deer team,” said Seabrooke. “My wife Teresa and I look forward to making Red Deer our home and working with Council, City staff and the community.”

Seabrooke has 30 plus years of experience in both the private and public sectors with education in parks and recreation administration, urban planning, government administration, and horticulture and parks management.

“Allan comes to us with an extensive private and public sector background with specific experience in the municipal sector,” said Mayor Tara Veer. “He has proven to be a strong leader who builds solid relationships with staff and the community. His immediate priorities will be to familiarize himself with the organization and community, and to meet with the corporate leadership team to implement Council’s strategic direction.”

The appointment of Seabrooke is the result of an extensive nation-wide search. The final selection of the City Manager was made unanimously by City Council.

“We received strong interest and numerous applications in our search for a leader who meets our corporate values of respect, integrity, service and excellence,” said Mayor Veer. “Council welcomes Allan to Red Deer as our next City Manager.”

Tara Lodewyk, Director of Planning Services will serve as interim City Manager until May 13 when Seabrooke becomes City Manager.
