August 22nd, 2018 Luncheon


David Cooke

David Cooke became Fort Worth’s city manager June 30, 2014, following a national search. Cooke is responsible for implementing the Mayor and City Council’s policies and managing the $1.6 billion city government enterprise with approximately 6,600 employees.

While the City of Fort Worth’s population grows at approximately 20,000 new citizens per year, Cooke’s focus is on:

  • Exceptional customer service
  • Maintaining a long-term perspective
  • Stressing partnerships to provide services and solve complex public policy problems
  • Planning and implementing the infrastructure needs of a growing city

His prior experience includes 13-1/2 years as County Manager and 4 years as Deputy County Manager, in Wake County, N.C.; and 12 years with the city of Charlotte, N.C.

Cooke has also worked with a full-service engineering and consulting firm, has taught economics at a community college, and was a presidential management intern with the Department of Defense.

Cooke received his undergraduate degree and master’s degree in public administration from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

We will also have a discussion on our committee structure. 


The luncheon will still be at the Petroleum Club at 11:45 am, Wednesday, August 22nd, 2018. 

777 Main Street

Suite 4000

Fort Worth, Texas 76102

Please e-mail with any questions.

Thank you

We would ask that each firm bring 2 additional leaders or future leaders from their firm to this luncheon. Part of this is for a good showing for our speaker, but the other part is so we can continue to grow this organization and cultivate new members to serve in various capacities in the future.
