Timm Borden Named Interim City Manager in Cupertino

The Cupertino City Council has appointed Public Works Director Timm Borden as the next interim City Manager. Borden will replace interim City Manager Amy Chan, who had been in the role since July 5, 2018. Borden’s appointment became effective on Monday, January 7, 2019.

“Amy has done an incredible job for the City and we wish her well in the next chapter of her life,” Mayor Steven Scharf said. “I want to thank Timm for stepping into this role and bringing stability to the organization.”

Chan had been serving as the interim City Manager since former City Manager David Brandt’s retirement in the summer. Chan is leaving the City after having exhausted her annual maximum allowed hours as a CalPERS retiree.

“Timm will do a great job in his new role as he is a proven leader in our organization,” Chan said.

Borden, who has been the City’s Public Works Director since 2010, is expected to serve as interim City Manager for approximately four to five months as the City Council seeks a permanent replacement.

“I’m honored by the confidence and trust that the City Council has shown me,” Borden said. “The men and women of our City’s organization are truly outstanding, and I’m confident that with their support we will be able to solve critical issues and celebrate many accomplishments over the next few months.”
