A passionate and experienced leader, Indie has 14 years of municipal engineering experience and has held Public Works positions in Operations and Maintenance, Development Engineering, Capital Planning, and most recently as the City’s Director of Downtown Revitalization and Acting Director of Engineering Services where he began the planning process of a major urban renewal project in the City’s core and was responsible for leading full corridor reconstruction, bridge improvements, and other infrastructure projects identified within the City’s 10-year Capital Plan. 

Indie is a graduate of the Civil Engineering Program at the University of Toronto, a Licensed Professional Engineer (P. Eng.) and a certified Project Management Professional (PMP).

 Prior to joining the City of Brantford in 2018, Indie led several significant projects in Brampton including major road widenings, transit expansion, and “Downtown  Reimagined”, which included the reconstruction and revitalization of Brampton’s downtown. 

Mayor Kevin Davis commented on the importance of the role saying, “from waste collection, to public transit, to street maintenance, parks, and infrastructure projects, the services provided by Public Works are at the heart of our community’s development and residents’ quality of life. On behalf of Brantford City Council, I want to congratulate Indie on his new position and look forward to working with him closely to move the objectives of the Public Works Commission and City forward.”

“I am confident that the City will benefit tremendously from Indie’s experience and unique skill set”, said the City’s Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Brian Hutchings. “With the City expanding, and the demand for core services growing, I look forward to the energy and fresh perspective that Indie will bring to this central City portfolio.”

“I am very excited to take on this important leadership role”, said Hans. "In addition to building stronger relationships with both staff and our external partners, improving service delivery and the customer service experience for residents are key priorities.”

Reporting to the Chief Administrative Officer, the General Manager of Public Works oversees the City’s Operational Services, Engineering Services, Fleet and Transit Services, Environmental Services, and Parks Services departments, including over 400 employees.
