[ARCHIVED] Brad Kaye Hired as City Manager

Brad Kaye LM2


August 29, 2017 – The City of Midland is pleased to announce that C. Bradley (Brad) Kaye has been hired as its new City Manager.

Kaye was selected from a pool of 39 applicants after a nationwide search. Following an extended offer from the Midland City Council during a special session on August 22, he was officially sworn into the office on Tuesday, August 29.

Kaye joined the City of Midland as Director of Planning and Community Development in 2012 and was promoted to Assistant City Manager for Development Services in 2015. Previously, he spent his professional career in urban planning: first in the private sector as a community planner for Gourdie-Fraser, Inc., and then as the Director of Planning for the Charter Township of Garfield, both in Traverse City.

Before moving to Michigan, Kaye served the Regional Municipality of Haldimand-Norfolk, Ontario, for 11 years as a development supervisor, development planner, and contract development planner.

“Brad is the perfect match for Midland’s needs in a City Manager,” said Midland Mayor Maureen Donker. “His keen leadership and extensive experience in urban planning, complemented by the strong relationships he already has with City staff, are assets that will benefit our entire community in this role. We look forward to seeing his vision for the city put into motion.”

Kaye holds a Bachelor of Environmental Studies in Honors Urban and Regional Planning from the University of Waterloo and recently completed the Leadership for the 21st Century executive education program through the Harvard Kennedy School.
