Davis city officials have named Yvonne Pimentel Quiring, currently the city manager in Fillmore, as their new assistant city manager and administrative services director.
Beginning Oct. 1, Quiring will replace former Assistant City Manager Paul Navazio, who is now the Woodland city manager.
"While growing up, our family used to visit Davis and attend events at the university, so working for the City of Davis will be like coming home,” Quiring said in a press release. “I’m looking forward to joining the management team and being part of this vibrant city.”
Quiring comes with 26 years of municipal experience in cities such as Fresno, Stockton, Lathrop and Fillmore.
In Fillmore, she was responsible for cutting the general fund by 40 percent, reducing its workforce by half and changing the compensation structure for existing staff.
“I look forward to Yvonne not only providing day-to-day management of the city’s Finance, Human Resources and Information Technology divisions, but also utilizing her financial background to find ways to reduce city’s expenses and employing her organizational skills to provide leadership for the department, the city organization and the community,” Davis City Manager Steve Pinkerton stated in a press release.
“I am thrilled that she was willing to relocate to Davis.”
Quiring’s father and two brothers graduated from UC Davis, and her mother worked for Chancellor Emil Mrak.
Quiring earned a bachelor’s degree in sociology from the California State University, Fresno and a master’s degree in business administration from the University of Phoenix.
