Email Robert Tamble, City Manager

Robert Tamble graduated from Smithville High School in 1979 and later attended Texas A&M University receiving a B.S. degree in Engineering Technology.  He was a member of the Fighting Texas Aggie Cadet Corps (Squadron Nine).

Prior to working for the City of Smithville, Robert spent 28-years as a Corporate Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) Executive in the aerospace, semiconductor, and battery energy storage industries.   In his early career, he was responsible for conducting system safety analyses of various military and civilian payloads flown aboard the Space Shuttle.  Later, Robert was responsible for developing world class EHS programs for both Applied Materials, Inc. and Xtreme Power, Inc.

Robert has been married to Sheila Tamble (Scoggins) for 32-years.  They have two boys – Mathew (age-30) and Mark (age-26).  Robert has lived in Smithville the past 43-years and has always been active member of the community.  He served as a Scout Leader, T-ball coach, Little Dribblers coach, and Pop Warner Football coach.  He was the Chairman of the SISD School Facilities / Citizens Advisory Committee that put together and passed a successful bond package for the new High School in 2002.  Robert served 3-terms on the Smithville City Council from 2007-2013.  Due to corporate downsizing in early 2014 (and prior experience as a Councilmember) Robert was asked by the Smithville City Council to fill-in as the Interim City Manager when Tex Middlebrook resigned.  Robert accepted the position on a permanent basis on June 1, 2014.
