Two Dallas city executives follow new city manager to Austin

Austin, Texas, will welcome Jon Fortune and Genesis D. Gavino, two Dallas top-level city executives, to its ranks in June. Both worked under T.C. Broadnax, the former Dallas city manager who recently took over the same role in Austin.         

Fortune, the current deputy city manager of Dallas, will join Austin as its deputy city manager. He also previously served as Dallas’ assistant city manager overseeing public safety and was assistant city manager in Denton for 17 years.

As Austin’s city manager, Fortune will help manage and direct city departments and organization-wide initiatives. He will bring 34 years of government experience to the role. Fortune will officially assume responsibilities June 10.           

Gavino will leave her role as chief of staff for the Dallas city manager to accept a position as special assistant to the Austin city manager. She has previously served Dallas as a resilience officer, deputy resilience officer and assistant to the city manager and chief of staff. Gavino brings more than a decade of public sector experience to the role.

Gavino will be the first to hold the newly created special assistant role. As special assistant, she will support the city manager in driving change and implementing strategic initiatives and partnerships. Her first day was June 3.
