Director of General Services Nathan Martinez.

Nathan Martinez is a born and raised native Burqueño. His proven leadership in managing multi-million-dollar facilities is decades-long and speaks to his exceptional skill set. Nathan will now be bringing his project management, public service and impactful team-building acumen to the City of Albuquerque as the new Director of the General Services Department (GSD). GSD manages all of the City’s buildings, houses our Metro Security team and Crossing Guard Division, and provides support to every City employee.

Nathan is a graduate of the University of Phoenix and Central New Mexico Community College, and has earned certifications in project management (PMP) and facility management (FMP).

Prior to this new role, Nathan managed a diverse portfolio of facilities at Sandia National Laboratories as Operations and Engineering Lead, where he partnered with architects, space planners and engineers to maximize facility sustainability.

This move is actually a return to public service for Nathan, as before his career at Sandia, he served both supervisory and managerial roles for the City of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County.

In his free time, Nathan enjoys riding bike-riding and hiking with his wife Teresa and their Weimaraner Cal. The family is also big fans of exploring New Mexico in their RV.
