Mr. Garrin Coleman has been hired by Forsyth County government to fill the newly created position of assistant county manager. In this role, Coleman will oversee operations of the county’s Engineering, Recycling & Solid Waste, Fleet Services and Public Facilities departments. He will also serve as the executive manager for all transportation related activities and responsibilities, and will be the county’s key contact with the Georgia Department of Transportation.


Coleman brings to the county nearly 20 years of experience in engineering and transportation related roles. He served most recently as director of Public Works for Sandy Springs, through a contract with AECOM, a position he held since 2012. Prior to that he held the positions of deputy director of Public Works, capital program manager and the contracted Transportation Planning Division manager for Sandy Springs, and worked as a land development manager with Lowes Engineers, LLC.


“Transportation is without question a major focus for Forsyth County government,” said County Manager Eric Johnson. “The new assistant county manager position was created to provide a central point-of-contact between Forsyth County and entities such as the Georgia Department of Transportation, Cumming-Forsyth County Chamber of Commerce, Development Authority of Forsyth County and the City of Cumming regarding regional transportation development efforts. Garrin brings to this position a wide variety of experience and we are looking forward to welcoming him to the staff.”


He holds a Bachelor of Science in Biological Engineering from The University of Georgia and a Master of Business Administration in Real Estate from Georgia State University. Coleman is a Georgia professional civil engineer, a Georgia land surveyor in training and a GSWCC Level II certified designer.  He is a member of the American Public Works Association and the Institute of Transportation Engineers.


Coleman’s first day with the county will be April 9.
