City Manager announces new executive for the Department of Sustainable Development and Construction
Dallas City Manager T.C. Broadnax announced the appointment of William G. Mundinger, II to serve as Executive in Residence for the Department of Sustainable Development and Construction (SDC).
Mr. Mundinger will support SDC’s reorganization and transformation. Realigning SDC and the City’s building and permitting process is critical to the success of the City of Dallas’ newly adopted Economic Development Policy.
“Will Mundinger has decades of expertise to lend to this transition,” said City Manager Broadnax. “His determination, dedication to the City of Dallas, and passion for problem-solving will prove to be beneficial as we navigate through this reorganization and chart a new course for Sustainable Development and Construction.”
In his capacity at Goldman Sachs, Mr. Mundinger was National Director of Development, Environmental, and Construction Services. There he provided development and oversight services in Dallas, the East and West Coasts and internationally. Mr. Mundinger is adept at convening partners and identifying strategies, solutions, and implementation plans for complex problems in all aspects of the development process, across all types of properties and projects.
Mr. Mundinger will report to Dr. Eric A. Johnson, Chief of Economic Development and Neighborhood Services. “When we brought the Economic Development Policy to the City Council in May 2021, we made it clear that we were serious about developing a path towards meaningful change,” said Dr. Johnson. “Will Mundinger’s appointment demonstrates that we are on that path and moving thoughtfully but quickly.”
“I want to thank City Manager Broadnax and Dr. Eric Anthony Johnson for this opportunity,” said Mr. Mundinger. “This department and its functions are a vital component to the sustainable economic development of any major city. We are in the first inning of a long game. I am confident we can identify opportunities and take immediate steps to innovate. I am excited to help facilitate this next chapter and look forward to working with City staff and our stakeholders to unlock the potential of Sustainable Development and Construction.”
When the City Council approved the Economic Development Policy, they established a one-year transition period to develop the infrastructure and processes that will lead to a successful Policy implementation. Mr. Mundinger will help lead and implement a strategy that includes organizational restructuring, connecting and communicating with the development community, examining process issues, and making recommendations for change.
Mr. Mundinger will begin his tenure with the City of Dallas on Aug. 16, 2021.
