The City welcomes two new members to its executive leadership team. Both assume their posts today. Ryan Gagnon, former Deputy Chief of Police, begins his first day as Chief of Police. Chief Gagnon has been a member of the Auburn Hills Police Department since 1999, beginning as a Patrol Officer and advancing through the ranks to the police department’s top job. Steve Baldante joined the Auburn Hills Department of Public Works in August of 2021. Since being hired last year as Manager of Municipal Properties, Baldante has proven himself to be an ambitious learner and effective leader. His career history in finance and construction management makes him a natural to manage the many functions of the Department of Public Works.
Congratulations to both on their promotions. We wish them nothing but success.
Thomas Tanghe, City Manager
