Since the establishment of the City of Newark’s information technology team in 2013, Joshua Brechbuehl had been its manager, implementing technology efforts in the hometown of the University of Delaware. When he announced he would be moving on in November, the city found itself with a pair of big shoes to fill.

McCormick starts on Monday, Jan. 8.-30-
