Fremont City Manager Fred Diaz announced his retirement effective September 21, 2018, marking nearly 14 years with the City. Diaz was hired in October 2004.
Diaz is only Fremont’s sixth city manager in its 62-year history and is one of the longest-tenured city managers currently appointed in local government in the Bay Area.
Diaz started his career in the public sector in August 1983 working for the City of Pico Rivera, California as an administrative assistant and then assistant to the city manager. In 1988, he went on to serve the City of Azusa, California as assistant city manager for 2.5 years, and then on to become city manager for Indio and Tracy, both California cities. Diaz served as city manager in Tracy for over 10 years.
“My years in Fremont have been the most professionally rewarding in my career—but it’s not over yet,” said Fremont City Manager Fred Diaz. “Between now and September 21, we have a number of important issues to deal with and I intend to help the Council lead this community forward.”
The Fremont City Council will conduct a nationwide executive recruitment to hire a new city manager.
