The Tega Cay City Council has approved Dennis Pieper as Tega Cay’s new City Manager. Mr Pieper was one of three possible candidates being considered by the city council. He was a town administrator for Summerville SC. He has 18 years of management experience in county and municipal government.
Tega Cay’s Mayor Sheppard sent out the following letter about the appoitment of Dennis Piper;
After a 3 month City Manager search, I would like you to join me in welcoming our new City Manager Dennis Pieper! On Friday Night, August 26, Council approved Dennis as our new City Manger. He will be joining us on Monday, September 12th.
Before I wish you all a Happy Labor Day, I would like to take a moment to thank my fellow council members who worked very hard to get us a new City Manager. Council created a new job description for the position, spent many late nights and weekends reviewing and sorting over 70 resume’s, made phone calls and interviewed various candidates to find the right match for Tega Cay. As you may have heard we received resume’s from around the Country which I believe is a testament to the great community we live in. Who wouldn’t want to come live and work in the great city of Tega Cay? So, to all of you, I wish a restful and safe Labor Day weekend. I know I will be relaxing with the knowledge that Dennis will be on board in less than 2 weeks!
In Today’s Septemenbt city letter, Dennis Pieper had the following note for the City Manager Minute:
First, I would like to thank the Mayor and the Councilmember’s for the confidence they have shown and for giving me the opportunity to serve you. As a team, the staff and I will work diligently to maintain the unique character and the beauty of the City while aggressively addressing the challenges.
I have received a warm “welcome” from many of the residents in the community. I look forward to working with the dedicated staff and getting to know you.
My background includes both City and County management including many years at a public utility. “The Good Life” Tega Cay offers makes this transition much easier and I will begin serving as your new City Manager on September 12th.
I would also like to wish Grant Duffield and his family the very best with their new endeavors. Thank you and I will see you soon!
