Kinsman named Assistant County Administrator
Acting County Administrator, Doug Powell, has announced Adam Kinsman as James City County’s new Assistant County Administrator effective May 1, 2014.
Kinsman filled the position as Acting Assistant County Administrator when Powell became the Acting County Administrator and General Manager of the James City Service Authority in March.
As the County’s Assistant County Administrator, Kinsman’s responsibilities will include serving with the Acting County Administrator as the principal contact to the Board of Supervisors for County-wide issues, representing the County on local and regional boards and commissions, serving on the Executive Leadership Team and managing various long-range strategic plans and projects.
“In Adam’s tenure as Deputy County Attorney, he has worked closely with all of the departments and has a broad knowledge of the County operations. As importantly, he has developed strong relationships both internally and externally,” says Powell. “His knowledge and skills will be especially helpful in supporting a new County Administrator.”
Kinsman came to James City County as an Assistant County Attorney in 2005 and was promoted to Deputy County Attorney in 2007. He provided legal counsel to all County Boards, Commissions and staff and represented the County in court proceedings in Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court, the General District Court, the Circuit Court, and the Virginia Supreme Court. Kinsman obtained his B.A. from the University of Virginia and his J.D. from the University of Richmond School of Law.
Kinsman serves on the boards of the United Way of Greater Williamsburg, LEAD Williamsburg, and the Williamsburg Bar Association.
“I appreciate the confidence placed in me by Doug and the members of the Board of Supervisors and I look forward to continuing to serve the citizens of James City County in this new role,” says Kinsman.
