The Town of Mooresville announced the resignation of Town Manager Randy Hemann on Thursday.

Hemann, who has led the town’s administrative staff since September of 2019, has accepted an offer to work as manager for the City of Oak Ridge, Tenn.

Mayor Miles Atkins lauded the outgoing manager for his contributions to the town, saying Hemann provided “community-focused leadership” and worked tirelessly “to execute the Board’s vision and provide the highest quality of services and resources possible” to residents and visitors alike.

“He has made a significant and positive impact on our community, being a driving force in the implementation and construction of numerous facilities, projects, and community resources — including the new Mooresville Police Department, Mooresville Fire-Rescue Fire Training Center and Station 6, Liberty Park, Mooresville Skate Park, Mooresville Public Library West Branch, and One Mooresville Center — during his tenure,” Atkins said.

“I am proud to have served Mooresville alongside him. We wish Mr. Hemann much success in his new role.”

Hemann will complete his contractual 60-day notice with the town. His last day will be October 23.

In a message to town staff on Thursday, Hemann praised the employees for their dedication to Mooresville.

“My success as a manager has been because of you and the people that work for you, and I am grateful for your work. … I look forward to hearing about the great things you will continue to do for this community and its citizens.”
