Rob Jensen to Be Named Roseville City Manager

The City of Roseville has asked Acting City Manager Rob Jensen to assume a permanent role as top administrator pending final approval from the council on Aug. 19.

Jensen has worked for the city since 1990 and took over as assistant city manager four years ago. He assumed the interim city manager position in July, following the retirement announcement of Ray Kerridge. Jensen’s predecessor was hired in 2010 after a seven-month nationwide search. He was already considering a December retirement when an automobile accident forced him to jumpstart that decision in June.

Under the three-year contract to be considered by the city council, Jensen would earn a base salary of $225,000. His start date would be Jan. 1, 2016.

“It’s a significant position to be CEO of the region’s only full-service city,” said city spokeswoman Megan Macpherson, noting that Jensen will oversee a half-billion-dollar annual budget, 15 departments, and 1,200 employees.
