OV town manager taking post in Grand Junction

Greg Caton, the Oro Valley town manager since 2011, is moving to become the city manager of Grand Junction, Colo.

Caton submitted his resignation Thursday, saying he'll work with the Town Council on a transition plan, including selecting an interim manager.

"I take great pride in the work that has been accomplished over my tenure," said Caton. "Oro Valley is a wonderful community and will always be a special place for me.

"Mr. Caton is deeply respected by Oro Valley Town Council, staff and the community," said Mayor Satish Hiremath. "He leaves a legacy of success and bold leadership. We are grateful for his years of service and wish him well in Grand Junction."

Caton began working for OV in November 2010 as the assistant town manager. In July 2011, he was named interim town manager, was named as town manager in April of the next year.

Caton has a lifetime of connections to Colorado, and was a finalist to become the city manager of Golden, Colo., last year.

Before moving to Oro Valley, Caton was assistant city manager for Durango, Colo., for eight years. He holds a bachelor's degree in Political Science from Fort Lewis College in Durango, and a master's degree in Public Administration from the University of Colorado at Denver.
