December 17, 2018
Mayor Walt Maddox has appointed Susan Snowden as chief financial officer, which went into effect Dec. 15.
Snowden holds a bachelor’s degree from Clemson University and has over 20 years of experience in accounting and financial reporting as well as holding a CPA certification. She has been with the City since 2015, serving as the deputy chief financial officer.
“The City of Tuscaloosa has a storied tradition of fiscal stewardship that is a model for the state. With Mike Wright’s recent retirement, it was imperative that we find the right person to continue his legendary work as CFO," Mayor Walt Maddox said. "I believe Susan Snowden is that person and I am extremely confident that she will continue Mike’s legacy of dedicated service and exceptional leadership in managing our financial resources. Susan brings to the City boundless energy and I look forward to working with her in the years to come to elevate Tuscaloosa.”
Snowden acted as the interim chief financial officer since Oct. 1 following the retirement of Mike Wright, who served as chief financial officer for over three decades.
