Yasmin Beers Bio:
Yasmin K. Beers currently serves as the City Manager for the City of Glendale. Prior to her appointment, Yasmin was Glendale's Assistant City Manager and had been serving as its Interim City Manager since November 2017. In her capacity as Assistant City Manager, she served as the Chief Operating Officer overseeing approximately 1,600 employees serving in Police, Fire, Public Works, Parks, Library, and Glendale Water & Power Departments, to name a few. She was also responsible for City-wide budget oversight, labor and employee relations, the Capital Improvement Program, policy management, and served as the administrative hearing officer for the City. Yasmin played a crucial role in the restructuring of the City organization necessitated by the Great Recession and subsequent elimination of the City's Redevelopment Agency in 2012.
Yasmin attended and graduated from Hoover High School. She earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from the California State University, Northridge and a Master's degree in Organizational leadership from Woodbury University.
Yasmin began her career with the City of Glendale in 1987 as a part-time employee in the Library Department while in high school and college. For the past 31 years, she has held various, progressively responsible positions. Yasmin was appointed Deputy City Manager in 2000 and, in 2010, she was appointed Assistant City Manager.
Yasmin is a past member of Soroptimist International of Glendale. She served as President in
1999/2000. She is also a past board member of the Salvation Army and the American Red Cross. In 2011, the Glendale Chamber of Commerce recognized Yasmin as Woman of the Year; in 2013, she was the recipient of the Armenian American Woman of Excellence Award; in 2014, Yasmin was recognized by the Glendale Educational Foundation for her distinguished service and philanthropic efforts; in 2015, YWCA awarded Yasmin with the Heart & Excellence Award; and in 2017, she was recognized by Business Life magazine as a Women Achiever, each a tribute to her core values that represent her civic responsibilities, volunteerism, and community service.
