Cupertino’s Manager is Retiring

Cupertino City Manager Dave Brandt is concluding a six-year run as the city’s top executive. Brandt announced his retirement Wednesday, effective July 6.

“Cupertino is in a better place today than it was when David was hired,” said Mayor Darcy Paul. “That is a good touchstone by which one can assess a City Manager’s impact. David did an excellent job for the community, and he will be missed. We wish him all the best in future endeavors.”

Brandt worked for the City of Alameda for 10 years before joining Cupertino. He had also previously worked as City Manager of Redmond, Oregon. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from UCLA, a Master of Arts in Urban Planning from the University of Michigan, and a juris doctorate from the University of Wisconsin.
