Michael Penny - Interim City Manager


For more than two decades, Michael Penny has exemplified the ideals of leadership, collaboration, partnership, and teamwork as the administrative manager for both large and small municipalities across Colorado. His passion and dedication to building robust communities that address the critical needs of citizens, businesses, and industry is evidenced by the strong footprint Michael has left in each community he has touched.


Michael’s career path is marked with success through significant contributions to local government as a municipal manager, consultant, and private sector strategist. Michael currently serves as an independent strategic management consultant. In that capacity, he works closely with municipal governments, providing expertise and guidance to communities facing a management and leadership void due to the absence of a municipal administrator. He currently lends his expertise as the Interim City Manager for Castle Pines, Colorado.


Michael’s prior experience includes roles as the Vice President of Client Services for Brown and Caldwell (2016 to 2017), City Manager for the City of Littleton, Colorado (2011 to 2016), Town Manager for the Town of Frisco, Colorado (2004 to 2011) and City Manager for the City of Ouray, Colorado (2002 to 2004).
