Finance director Steve Parker has been promoted to assistant city manager, San Marcos City Hall officials announced on Friday.
Parker, who has led the finance department since 2008, will continue in the capacity of finance director as he takes on added duties to assist City Manager Jim Nuse in the oversight of financial matters, economic development, contracts and financial negotiations.
“’Sound Finances’ has been the top strategic initiative adopted by the City Council in the past two years,” Nuse said. “Steve’s leadership and experience and the hard work of his team have contributed immeasurably to the City’s achievement of this goal, even during periods of economic challenges.”
Parker joins Collette Jamison as an assistant city manager in Nuse’s administration. Jamison has held the position since 2007.
“I am very excited to be given this opportunity,” Parker said. “I am proud to be part of strengthening our organization. San Marcos is a special place with a special workforce and citizenry. I look forward to the future.”
Parker joined the City of San Marcos in 1993 where he served as an accounting manager until 1997. He left for 10 years and worked as a manager in the Cost Services Division for MAXIMUS, Inc. the largest non-defense government consulting firm in the nation.
He returned to the City of San Marcos in 2007 as Assistant Finance Director, and served as interim director until he was named Finance Director in 2008.
A graduate of Texas State University Marcos with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, Parker is a member of the Certified Government Finance Officers Association. He is also a graduate of the Virginia Darden Business School Leaderships Program.
