We get to offer a hearty congratulations today to the City of Long Beach (Calif) and to Kevin Riper, its new Director and Chief Financial Officer of the City’s Department of Financial Management!
City Manager Tom Modica made the announcement, and we couldn’t be more proud to have managed the recruitment on behalf of the management team and the City Council.
Riper brings a ton of experience in municipal finance to the team, resulting in the budget, investment, management and reporting chops to manage the City’s $3 billion+ annual budget.
He’s leaving his post at the City of Oxnard to take on the Long Beach job, starting on Sept 7.
