About our Lunch Keynote

City Manager Christopher J. Brady, became City Manager of Mesa, Arizona in January 2006. With more than 30 years of public sector management experience, he is the Chief Administrative Officer of a municipality with approximately 4,000 employees, an annual operating and capital budget of $1.8 billion and a population of 500,000 residents. Mesa, Arizona is the nation's 35th largest city.

He was hired by the Mayor and City Council in 2006 to bring new leadership and direction to City government. During his tenure, Brady has reorganized City departments, streamlined business operations, improved customer service and professionalism of City staff, and steered the City through some of the most difficult economic times in recent history.

Working with the Mayor, City Council, business and community leaders and residents, he has been instrumental in improving the City's financial and budgeting models earning the respect of his peers, and more importantly, Mesa residents. These efforts included the passage of several capital bond initiatives for streets and public safety, with debt service being tied to a secondary property tax (the first in more than 65 years).

Prior to joining the City of Mesa, Brady served as Assistant City Manager of the City of San Antonio for ten years. He also served in various executive management and administrative positions for Bellaire, TX, Houston, TX, and Provo, UT.
