WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Board of Selectmen will interview the finalists in the town’s search for its Finance Director/Town Accountant on Tuesday, April 16, 2019 at 7pm at Town Hall.
The two finalists are Hayley S. Green, CPA — who currently serves as the Town Accountant/Assistant Finance Director for the Town of Andover — and Bryan Perry, CPA — who currently serves as the City Auditor for Lowell.
Green will interview at 7pm. Perry will interview at 8:15pm. Each interview is scheduled to last an hour. These interviews will be open to the public.
As described in a memo written by Town Accountant Mike Morris and provided to the Selectmen on Monday night, the town received 10 applicants for the job opening.
The screening committee — which consisted of the soon-to-be-retiring Town Account Mike Morris, Town Manager Jeff Hull, Assistant Town Manager Kerry Colburn-Dion, and Selectman Jonathan Eaton — interviewed three applicants and decided to bring forth two finalists — Green and Perry — for the Selectmen to interview.
Town Accountant Mike Morris, who has served the town for more than 30 years, has announced his intention to retire in early July.
Selectmen took the opportunity to tweak the town’s financial management structure, turning the Town Accountant position into a Finance Director/Town Accountant position.
The new position is responsible to the Town Manager and Board of Selectmen, serves as Town Accountant and Chief Financial Officer, and oversees the Town’s financial activities which include accounting, assessing, collections, treasury, financial systems and purchasing. The position advises the Town Manager on revenue projections, serves as the Town Manager’s technical advisor on departmental budgets and management, and has oversight of the preparation of the Town’s annual operating and capital budgets.
