City Manager Thomas Sheridan

Hudson City Council voted unanimously to appoint Thomas Sheridan as Hudson City Manager at the October 4, 2022, Council Meeting. Thom has been Interim City Manager since March of 2022. The selection was made after a nationwide search for candidates for the position.  

“Thom Sheridan has the experience in the community, the respect of an overwhelming majority of his coworkers, and the trust of Council, which will all help him succeed in the City Manager role. Combined with his tenure, engineering mindset, and fact-based attitude, I cannot imagine a more qualified individual,” said Council President Chris Foster.

“I am truly honored the Hudson City Council unanimously selected me as the new City Manager to lead the city. Hudson is a vibrant and historic city with the finest schools and neighborhoods, world-class companies, and a safe place to live. As a long-time employee of the city, I understand the historic characteristics of the city, and I will strive to protect the charm that makes Hudson an excellent community in which to live, work and visit. I am dedicated to driving economic development to help support the Council’s goals for the future, and I will ensure the excellent service all of our employees provide the city,” said Thom Sheridan.

In addition to being the Chief Administrative Officer for the City of Hudson, the position is also the Director of Public Safety for the city. Along with his City Manager duties, Thom will continue with his previous responsibilities as Assistant City Manager (ACM), and the ACM position will be eliminated.

Thom brings more than 30 years’ experience to the position. Most recently, as Interim City Manager, he was responsible for daily operations of all the city departments. Prior to the Interim City Manager appointment, Thom became Assistant City Manager in 2017. His responsibilities included overseeing Engineering, Community Development, Communications and HCTV, as well as managing the annual capital projects, capital budgeting, and project scheduling. 

From 2008 to 2017, Thom was Hudson’s City Engineer. His responsibilities included overseeing the annual capital budget, including major grant funding, project scheduling, and department personnel. As City Engineer, he supervised the project management and coordination with businesses and residents to construct projects that would have the least impact for the public. Since 2008, he is most proud of obtaining over $30 million in grant funding for the City.

Prior to joining Hudson, Thom was the Assistant Service Director for the City of Stow, Ohio. He was responsible for managing approximately 100 employees in multiple departments. He joined the City of Stow as Assistant City Engineer in 2002. Prior to this, he was a consultant for an engineering firm. He also worked in Stow in 1995-2000 as a design engineer.

He graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree majoring in Civil Engineering from Youngstown State University. Thom is licensed as a Professional Engineer in Ohio and Pennsylvania; a Professional Surveyor in Ohio; a Certified Class II Water Distribution Operator; and a Certified Floodplain Manager. He currently lives in Stow with his wife and 4 children. He will be relocating to Hudson in the future for this position.
