PEACHTREE CORNERS, Ga. -- Julian L. Jackson has been named the first-ever city manager of the new city of Peachtree Corners.

Jackson's new position will take effect on Oct. 1. He joins Peachtree Corners from Monroe, Ga., where he has served as city administrator since 2000.

"It is truly an honor to be selected as the first city manager of Peachtree Corners," Jackson said in a statement. "I am very excited about this unique opportunity."

In addition to his experience with the city of Monroe, Jackson has worked for Roswell and in several small communities in Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. He is president of the Georgia City/County Management Association and serves on the board of directors of the Municipal Gas Authority of Georgia.

Jackson has a doctorate and master's in public administration from Valdosta State University, and a bachelor's in accounting from the University of West Florida. He and wife Stacey have two sons.

"We looked very hard for several months to find the perfect city manager for us, and we've done that in selecting Julian Jackson," Peachtree Corners Mayor Mike Mason said in a statement. "His professional experience and integrity combined with common sense is the perfect mix for us."
