County Manager Dick Anderson recently named Mrs. Anna Roach to the position of Chief Operating Officer for Fulton County. Mrs. Roach has over fourteen years of experience practicing law and serving as a consultant to government agencies. She has used her training as an attorney to serve in the public realm in a number of distinct ways, beginning with her tenure as an Administrative Law Judge of the City of New York. There, among additional supervisory and budget administration responsibilities, Mrs. Roach adjudicated violations of the city’s municipal code. In the office of the General Counsel, Mrs. Roach served the Mayor of the District of Columbia as head of the Legal and Policy Unit which responsibilities included: establishing legislative priorities for each district agency; maintaining district-wide personnel rules, regulations and orders; and serving as a subject-matter expert and providing legal counsel on all personnel matters.

Locally, Mrs. Roach has worked as a consultant for both government and quasi-government agencies, overseeing work streams designed to identify and develop solutions to address operational and business process inefficiencies. Clients included the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority, the State Department of Aging and the City of East Point. Before relocating to Atlanta, Mrs. Roach lived in New York City where she achieved her Bachelor’s Degree in Public Administration and Public Policy from the State University of New York at Cortland, and then her Juris Doctor from St. John’s University, School of Law. For the past seven years, she has been proud to call Fulton County home, and looks forward to the challenge of leading Fulton County's Strategic Planning Team, while supporting the County Manager's vision of making Fulton County First in Three: Impact, Service and Efficiency.
