PITTSBURG, Kan. — Pittsburg City Manager Daron Hall has been named one of “50 Kansans You Should Know” by Ingram’s Magazine, a leading business publication in Missouri and Kansas.

 A Topeka, Kansas native, Hall earned an undergraduate degree at Washburn University before completing a master’s in public administration at Texas A&M. He worked as budget and management analyst, capital improvements manager, and IT project manager at the City of Kansas City, Missouri before becoming city manager for Ulysses, Kansas in 2008.

 Under Hall’s leadership, the City’s partnerships throughout the community have resulted in unprecedented growth, the city said in a press release, and Pittsburg’s diverse economy has seen over $500 million of investment in the last six years. Coordination with the Pittsburg Area Chamber of Commerce, Pittsburg State University, businesses both large and small, and local leaders through the “Imagine Pittsburg” initiative has resulted in a community aligned to thrive through the pandemic and beyond, the release said, adding that the city is living up to its motto “Forward Together.”
