Steve has worked for Morgan Hill since April 2006. Prior to becoming the City Manager in 2013, he served as Morgan Hill's Community Services Director and oversaw recreation services, parks and street maintenance services, fire services, and environmental services. His collaborative leadership style was instrumental in maintaining the nationally recognized partnership with the YMCA of Silicon Valley, enhancing communication with the community, substantially increasing recreation services and cost recovery, and reestablishing the Morgan Hill Fire Department. 

Before coming to Morgan Hill, Steve served as the City of New Brighton, Minnesota, Parks and Recreation Director from 2000-2006 and the Community Center Manager from 1996-2000.  


As City Manager, Steve's priorities are to work collaboratively with the City Council, City teammates, the community, and our partners to advance the Council's vision and ongoing priorities.
