Van Eenoo rises to CFO

Wednesday, December 9, 2020 by Tai Moses

Ed Van Eenoo, who has served the city of Austin for the past 11 years – eight of them as deputy chief financial officer – is stepping into a new role this week as chief financial officer. As CFO, Van Eenoo will have the “fiduciary responsibilities for administrating all financial proceedings of city government, except for the assessment and collection of taxes,” according to a city announcement. “I’m honored to have been chosen to lead the city’s Financial Services Department,” said Van Eenoo. In his previous role as deputy CFO, Van Eenoo “was responsible for the development, presentation and subsequent monitoring of the city’s $4.2 billion annual operating budget and $1.0 billion annual capital budget,” which has been a “perennial winner” of awards. Van Eenoo is also known for his award-winning community engagement campaigns. He replaces Elaine Hart, who retired this year.
