Newton names new finance director
Donna Pickman has been named the City of Newton’s new finance director.
For the past nine years, Pickman has served as finance director in Colorado City, Colorado, a small suburb of Pueblo.
She previously worked as city finance director in Colby and spent 10 years in financial services as a bank officer in Goodland. She also worked for an accounting firm in Colby, where her duties included handling annual audits of four cities and 10 school districts.
“We are excited to have Donna join our team,” City Manager Bob Myers said. “Her extensive experience with public finance will be a great asset, and she comes very highly recommended by her previous employers.”
Pickman and her husband will be relocating to Newton in the coming weeks, and she will start work with the City on July 24. She will take the reins from Assistant Finance Director Lisa Marshall, who has been serving as interim finance director since July 2016.
