After a national search, David Medrano has been named Fort Worth’s next city auditor. City Council will appoint him at its next meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 9.
“David is joining the City with a wealth of leadership experience and strategic mindset that will serve our Internal Audit Department, and the entire City, well,” Mayor Mattie Parker said. The role of the city auditor position is vital to good governance, and his ability to work collaboratively to find and implement innovative solutions will help ensure the City operates with efficiency and accountability.”
Medrano has recently served as chief financial officer for SunLine Transit Agency in Thousand Palms, Calilf.; chief internal auditor for the Imperial Irrigation District in Imperial, Calif.; and internal audit chief for the County of Santa Barbara, Calif. He also has experience in audit and finance with several major energy companies in Texas.
Medrano has a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Southern Methodist University, a master of accounting degree from the University of St. Thomas in Houston, and an executive-accelerated development certification from Rice University.
John Riggs has been serving as interim city auditor since December 2021, replacing Patrice Randle, who retired.
