Hopfer Retires from City of Anaheim

December 19, 2011

ANAHEIM, CA - Karl Hopfer, fleet superintendent for the City of Anaheim, Calif., retired this month. He began his career at the City in 1991 as a motorcycle technician, moving up to become maintenance planner, then fleet superintendent in 2003.

Hopfer managed a 40-member team operating out of a 47,000 sq. ft., 30-bay repair facility. Fleet Services has an annual budget of approximately $11 million and is responsible for purchasing and maintaining all vehicles and motorized equipment used by the City, including small equipment.


Hopfer said his accomplishments during his time at the City include earning a California Green Fleet certification from the state, being named one of the 100 Best Fleets in North America four times in the past six years, and being president of the Anaheim City Communicators Toastmaster club for two years.

Hopfer plans to move to Texas, where he is looking to pursue an interest in teaching/facilitating training on logistical operations in emergency operations centers. 

The City is currently recruiting for the position of fleet superintendent. More information can be found here.
