The City of Auburn Hills is pleased to announce that Brandon Skopek has been appointed to the position of Assistant City Manager, effective Monday, October 18, 2021. Skopek succeeds Don Grice who retired last week after more than 32 years of service with the city.

To date, his local government experience of seven years, with both the City of Auburn Hills and previous employers, will serve this community well; as well as his educational achievements of a Bachelor of Science Degree in public administration and public policy as well as a Master of Public Administration degree, both from Oakland University. Congratulations Brandon!
