Suisun City Announces City Manager Selection: Bret Prebula

Bret is a Bay Area native, born and raised in Vallejo, but currently living in Benicia with my wife Jaclyn, daughter Emersen (11), and our three dogs Penny, Paisley and Juliette. Prior to his work in government he wore many hats: In his early twenties he was a professional golfer and Head Pro at Mare Island golf course in Vallejo, and an entrepreneur….owning his own golf store, The Shaft Shop, in Benicia.  He still golfs as often as he can, but now also proudly wear the hat of “Horse Show Dad” as his daughter begins her competitive riding career alongside his wife. Both are Eventers and amaze him with their bravery and horsemanship! When not at the golf course or the barn, he can usually be found at one of my two favorite places: South Lake Tahoe or Disneyland with the family.  
Bret began working in the government sphere after completing his Master of Business Administration in 2008. He started in the County of Napa as a staff services analyst for the library, later moving to the Corrections Department to be their Administrative Services Manager.  From there, his work took him to County Executive office as a Principal Management Analyst and then the Assistant Treasurer- Tax Collector. Bret later moved from the county to The City of Napa when he accepted the role as their Finance and IT Director. Next, work brought him closer to home as Finance Director for City of Benicia, and ultimately his final position in their organization: Assistant City Manager. Bret then had the pleasure of being the City Manager for the City of Clayton now bringing him to the beautiful Suisun City.  
"I feel so lucky to have touched so many different facets of municipal work during my career and feel that these previous roles have primed me to effectively lead the city. I will strive as the City Manager to create a municipality that focuses on efficiency, realistic cost to delivering current service, ensuring the community knows and understands the value of the work done by city staff and to create a roadmap for improving and innovating the future."
