New Peoria Economic Development Director

Peoria Welcomes New Economic Development Director
The City of Peoria is proud to announce that Rick Buss will take the reign as director of economic development services.
“Rick’s experience in the high-tech and sustainability industries, coupled with his international relationships and city leadership experience, make him an ideal fit for this position,” said Jeff Tyne, Peoria city manager. “With a strong professional reputation, and extensive connections with Arizona business and community leaders, Rick is uniquely positioned to help raise Peoria’s profile both regionally and beyond.”
Rick brings over 24 years of public and private sector executive management experience to Peoria. Prior to Peoria, Rick was the assistant city manager for the city of Surprise where he oversaw the economic development, community development, water resource management, and information technology departments. In addition, Rick was the founding city manager for the city of Maricopa, where he led an unprecedented cycle of growth, growing the city from 1,492 citizens to more than 35,000 in just under 4 years, and an annual budget growing from $585,000 to more than $93 million.
“Peoria is an example of a visionary and innovative city with a business-forward city leadership," said Buss. “It is a privilege to be a part of this organization. I look forward to collaborating with this exemplary Peoria team as we collectively bring the city to the next level of being world class, sustainable, and future ready.”
Rick holds a Bachelor of Science in International Marketing, a Masters in Public Administration (MPA), and a Graduate Certificate in Sustainable Technology and Management (CSTM).
