Enge, 49, hails from Berkeley, Calif. He earned a bachelor of science degree in accounting and mathematics from Oregon State University and a master of business administration in finance from the University of Oregon. Enge is also active in the Government Finance Officers Association. He and his wife, Agnes, live in Bothell with their three children. They will relocate to Federal Way.

On the personal side, Enge has been active with the Girl Scouts of America (Columbia River Council), coached a number of youth sports, umpires for the North Bothell Little League, and currently serves on the board of the Bothell Cougar Junior Football Association.

"We like the depth of Bryant’s experience," said City Manager Neal Beets. "He brings a great set of skills and a passion for the work that we can immediately tap into. We are looking forward to him continuing the strong financial tradition that’s been in place since Federal Way’s incorporation, and we’re also anxious to see him dive right in on our economic development projects and get involved with our facilities and transportation programs."

Of his appointment, Enge said, "Federal Way is a vibrant, progressive and growing city strategically located in the Puget Sound area. I am thrilled to be part of the community of citizens, businesses and organizations committed to making Federal Way a great place to live and work."
