Indianapolis Mayor Greg Ballard last week announced that longtime financial analyst Jeff Spalding would take over as the city’s new controller.
Outgoing controller David Reynolds left last month to take a job as a senior fiscal analyst for the Indiana Republican majority caucus. He had served as controller since Ballard took office in January 2008.
Spalding has worked as a financial analyst and administrator in the public and private sectors for more than 25 years, the mayor’s office said in a press release.
He comes to the job from Indiana Department of Transportation where he served as director of multimodal planning and policy. He worked as a financial administrator at the Indiana Commission for Higher Education and as a fiscal analyst for the Indiana House, where he was also part of the State Revenue Forecast Technical Committee. He will start Nov. 22.
