Mukerjee becomes Fife City Manager

Subir Mukerjee, who has served as Fife’s deputy city manager, was appointed to the city manager position by Fife City Council this month. The unanimous appointment took affect immediately.

He had been serving as the interim city manager since former City Manager David Zabell left Fife to accept a position in Pasco last year.

Mukerjee said that working closely with Fife over the years, either as the former Milton city administrator and then as Fife deputy city manager, has prepared him for the role.

“When I came to Fife nine months ago, I never expected to be promoted so soon. It’s a wonderful surprise and I am ready for the job. I am confident that we can work together to accomplish our goals,” he said.
