The Fulton County Board of Commissioners has confirmed Johns Creek resident Steve Broadbent to the Fulton County Development Authority. Broadbent was nominated by District 3 Commissioner Liz Hausmann, also a Johns Creek resident.
Broadbent has had a distinguished career in both business and public service, including 22 years in the U.S. Navy and Naval Reserves. He currently serves as a managing director with Fulcrum Partners, a benefits consulting firm. He also served in several roles with AT&T, in Virginia and Atlanta.
From 1989 to 1993, Broadbent served as Deputy Assistant Secretary to the U.S. Department of the Treasury. In this role he was responsible for developing and implementing the strategic plan to integrate information technology applications.
Last year he ran for a spot on the Johns Creek City Council against Brad Raffensperger, who won after a run-off.
Broadbent holds a Master of Arts degree in Public Policy from the George Washington University, a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and a Bachelor of Science degree in Nuclear Engineering from the University of Virginia.
“The Development Authority will certainly benefit from Mr. Broadbent’s insights. His perspective on the financial and technology industries will be particularly important for future economic development opportunities in Fulton County,” said Commissioner Hausmann.
Broadbent will fill a vacancy left by outgoing Board member John Dorris.
