City Manager Bruce Glasscock retiring after nearly 30 years with Plano


Plano City Manager Bruce Glasscock is retiring after nearly 30 years with the city.

Glasscock notified Plano City Council of his intent to retire by the end of April, according to a news release.

Glasscock has spent 50 years in the public sector, the past 29 years with Plano. He was first hired as the Plano police chief in 1990. He then held dual roles as police chief and deputy city manager in 1998 until he fully transitioned into the deputy city manager role in 2001. City Council appointed him as the city manager in 2011.

In regard to his retirement, Glasscock said, “The time has come to move along.”

“A lot has been accomplished during my career with Plano for which I am honored to have been a part, but the true credit goes to ‘Team Plano’ and the more than 2,000 employees who provide service to our citizens on a daily basis,” Glasscock said in a statement. “I will miss those employees and the tremendous work they do for our community.”

Glasscock’s tenure includes the development of the Legacy West area, home to Boeing Global Services, FedEx Office, JCPenney, JPMorgan Chase, Liberty Mutual, Toyota Connected and Toyota Motor North America.

“We applaud Bruce’s service and wish him the best,” Plano Mayor Harry LaRosiliere said in a statement. “He leaves this role having served Plano with great honor and distinction. Future generations will feel the enduring impact of what has been accomplished throughout his tenure.”
