With expansive residential properties surrounded by beautiful gardens, wide streets, and well-maintained parkways, the City of San Marino (pop. 13,327) is one of the most desirable communities in Los Angeles County to live. San Marino residents are well educated and successful, and include long time homeowners, young families, and second homes. Based on the City’s high property values, property tax revenue, and fiscal conservatism, the community is financially secure and enjoys a General Fund reserve balance of approximately 72% projected at FY 2019/20 year-end. As a General Law city operating under a council-manager form of government, the City consists of seven departments and 135.94 authorized full-time equivalent employees (FTEs). The Finance Director will oversee a staff of three positions providing financial, budgetary, accounting, payroll, and treasury services and additionally, she/he will broadly oversee the Human Resources and the Information Technology functions.

The City is seeking a collaborative individual with extensive expertise in budgeting (operating and capital), revenue and expense projections, procurement, and the administration of state and federal grants and donations. The ideal candidate is a professional who is comfortable in an action-oriented environment. She/he must be able to successfully and credibly communicate with a wide variety of audiences to articulate the budget, policy recommendations, project goals, and City vision. Applicants should have a bachelor’s degree (master’s degree preferred) in finance, accounting, business administration, or a related field, and at least five years of increasingly responsible municipal experience in financial management, budgeting, or accounting, including three years of supervisory experience. Possession of a Certified Public Accountant or Certified Management Accountant designation is a plus, but not required.
