A former city government employee has returned to the fold in Wyoming.

The City of Wyoming has named Megan Sall assistant city manager, bringing her back to the city where she began her career as assistant to the city manager.

In her new role, Sall will serve as the city manager’s principal representative in various administrative functions, with focus on economic and downtown development. She will also serve as communication director, managing Wyoming’s website, social media and media inquiries, and she will be responsible for directing city projects, acting as a liaison between the city manager and department heads and community leaders.

“We are excited to have Megan back at the city in this new and expanded role,” City Manager Curtis Holt said. “She brings a passion for municipal work, community engagement and the City of Wyoming, along with a strong understanding of who we are.”

Sall’s background

Sall began as assistant to the city manager in 2007, eventually working her way to become director of the city’s Downtown Development Authority and community services coordinator. She went on to serve as campaign coordinator for Jason Allen for Congress and as a legislative aide for the Michigan Senate.

Sall worked as a program manager at the International City/County Management Association in Washington D.C., before returning to Grand Rapids to work as a business development manager at economic development agency The Right Place. Most recently, Sall worked at CQL, first as a project manager and later as an engagement manager.

“Megan’s past work with us, along with the expertise and skills she has developed in the interim, will allow her to be a tremendous asset to our continued growth and development,” Holt said.

Sall holds a bachelor’s degree in international relations and a master’s in public administration, both earned from Grand Valley State University.

Sall serves on the GVSU board and also mentors at the Cook Leadership Academy at the school. She has worked on the planning committee for the Great Lakes Software Excellence Conference and was a cabinet member of the Gerald R. Ford International Airport Gateway Transformation campaign.
