May 9, 2023

Kimberly Gammon, a multi-skilled administrator with a track record of delivering high-level clerical and parliamentarian services, has joined the Town of Hilton Head Island as its new Town Clerk. 

As Town Clerk, Kimberly will manage municipal affairs for the Hilton Head Island Town Council and ensure the council meets legal requirements outlined in the Town code. In addition, she will work closely with the Town Manager and staff to support Town boards and commissions, promote openness in government, maintain Town records, and prepare agendas, policy resolutions, and minutes for council and other meetings.  

Kimberly’s strong knowledge of municipal functions, familiarity with the community, and organizational skills position her well for this important role in the Town. “We are excited to welcome Kimberly to the Town. She will play a significant role in helping to facilitate the work of our Town Council. She understands records management, by-laws compliance, and government transparency well. I am confident she will do an excellent job for our Town and our citizens,” said Town Manager Marc Orlando.

Kimberly has amassed over 15 years of municipal experience, most recently serving as Town Clerk for the Town of Bluffton. Before that, she was Deputy Town Clerk and Executive Assistant to Bluffton’s Mayor and Town Manager. During that time frame, she helped to improve administrative processes in the Town Clerk’s office and strengthen the Town’s connection to its 32,000 residents. Among her successes was implementing technology to streamline records retention, agenda management, and external and internal communications. She was also responsible for onboarding members to Town boards, commissions, and committees. 

“This is an exciting opportunity. I look forward to working with our Town Council and our boards and commissions to efficiently serve the community and support their strategic vision for the Town,” Kimberly said. 

Kimberly earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration and management from the University of South Carolina (USC) and a diploma from the Municipal Association of South Carolina’s Municipal Clerks and Treasurers Institute through USC. She is originally from Chattanooga, Tennessee, and has lived in the Lowcountry since 2006. Kimberly enjoys spending time with her husband and three children in her spare time.
