Port Townsend hires finance, technology services director

PORT TOWNSEND — The city of Port Townsend has hired Jodi Adams as its finance and technology services director.

Adams, a Port Townsend resident who will start April 15, will lead the finance team in driving the city’s strategic approach to accounting, finance, budgeting and technology services.

Adams previously worked as the permit and administration supervisor for the city of Bainbridge Island and also as a manager with Jefferson County.

“I’m excited to be working in Port Townsend again, regaining the sense of place I feel when I serve the town and the people I care about,” Adams said. “I’ve enjoyed meeting the city team and feel privileged to join a group of ambitious, dynamic and collaborative people committed to serving the community.”

Adams will also provide advice and counsel to staff and the city council on finance, budget and/or technology issues; interpret, develop, implement and administer policies, procedures and agreements concerning budget and fiscal matters; and ensure the city meets statutory requirements for balanced budgets and state audits.

“I’m thrilled to bring a talented professional and strategic leader like Jodi into our city team,” Port Townsend City Manager John Mauro said.

“The city interview panels and previous employers also praise her intelligence, communication acumen, problem-solving skills, abilities to build and lead teams and professionalism. Jodi will be warmly welcomed into the city team and will add value to our team and community on day one.”
