In 2008, Marc Ott became the first African American to hold the position of Austin City Manager. During his tenure, Ott strategically guided Austin through challenging economic times, resulting in Austin topping the charts in ranking, including being ranked number one on the Forbes list of America’s Fasting Growing Cities.
As part of this exciting celebration to acknowledge Marc Ott’s accomplishments there were more than 300 attendees present sharing words of appreciation and gratitude for his hard work over 8+ years of service to the Austin community.
