Mayor Don Gough has announced his pick for Lynnwood’s next finance director. He has recommended Lorenzo Hines, the finance director for the city of Edmonds. The City Council is expected to make the final decision at tonight’s meeting.
The council interviewed the five finalists last week.
“From all the information, opinions, comments by staff, panel members, and community members and the city council, and based upon my review of materials and interviews, there is a very strong consensus about who our next finance director should be,” Gough said.
Hines has a B.S. in Accounting from the University of North Carolina and an M.B.A . from the University of Washington. Before coming to Edmonds he worked as a Controller at the Seattle Symphony and as the Chief Financial Officer at King County Public Health.
The City Council wants to confirm the new finance director soon so there can be some overlap time with interim director Pat Dugan.
