Cupertino City Manager Deborah Feng has been named one of the 2021 Women of Influence by the Silicon Valley Business Journal.
Each year, the Business Journal honors and celebrates the 100 most influential women in Silicon Valley.
In Cupertino, the city manager is responsible to the city council for the effective and efficient operation of the city, charged with carrying out the city’s adopted goals and objectives as well as overseeing the office of the city clerk, public affairs and sustainability programs.
In 2020, former Cupertino Mayor Steven Scharf applauded Feng for having ‘embraced openness and transparency’, and Mayor Darcy Paul acknowledged her during Cupertino’s annual State of the City address for ‘tireless and consistent efforts’ in her first year in her role while coordinating the city’s response to the Coronavirus.
Feng is a Cupertino native, and before her appointment to city manager in 2018, formerly served as the associate director of Mission Support at the NASA Ames Research Center at Moffet Field, where she worked in management and administration for more than 30 years.
This year’s Women of Influence award recipients will be honored in a Zoom event on Wednesday, June 30, 2021 from 4:00pm –5:30pm. For ticket information, visit here.
