Scottsdale City Manager Jim Thompson announced the appointment of Greg Caton as Scottsdale’s newest assistant city manager. Caton, who hails from Colorado with a robust background in municipal governance, is a credentialed government professional and has served as city manager in Grand Junction, Colorado, for the last eight years.
Before his Grand Junction tenure, Caton was the town manager in Oro Valley, Arizona. Additionally, his public administration career includes an eight-year stint as assistant city manager for the city of Durango, Colorado.

Caton earned a bachelor’s degree in political science from Fort Lewis College in Durango, Colorado, and a Master of Public Administration from the University of Colorado Denver. His professional dedication is marked by his achievement of the Credentialed Manager designation from the International City/County Management Association (ICMA).

An active member of Colorado’s local government community, Caton has been involved in state multijurisdictional groups and served on the board of the Colorado Intergovernmental Risk Sharing Agency (CIRSA).

“I look forward to joining the Scottsdale team,” says Caton. “Scottsdale is an organization with an excellent reputation, and I have family who reside there, so it it’s a perfect alignment for personal and professional interests. I could not be more excited.”

“Greg’s professional background and experience will be an excellent addition to our high-performance organization,” says Thompson. “We look forward to bringing him onboard as we continue our focus on providing world-class services to our thriving community.”

Caton will work alongside Scottsdale’s current assistant city managers, Bill Murphy and Brent Stockwell, when he assumes his new role May 6.
