"I'm very pleased to welcome Audrey to Redwood City - I know she'll excel as a crucial member of our executive team," said City Manager Bob Bell. "Audrey offers Redwood City a wide range of experience and success in every aspect of municipal management, and a great combination of skills, talent, and knowledge. She beat out over 100 candidates in what was a very competitive process."

I'm truly looking forward to joining the ongoing efforts of Redwood City as it moves forward in so many ways."
In addition to serving as a key resource for leading and facilitating strategic planning and City-wide process improvement initiatives, in this newly-created position Ms. Ramberg will oversee the City's Human Resources and Public Information functions, along with the operations of the City Manager's office.
