Winter Park finance director’s resignation makes it an even half-dozen
January 21, 2009
Winter Park Finance Director Shawn Cordsen is leaving his position to take a job with the city of Northglenn.
“It’s a really good opportunity for me to continue my advancement of my career,” said Cordsen, who is from the Front Range.
Cordsen made the announcement of his resignation last Monday.
This week the director has been busy with the town’s overhaul of financial software.
“It’s a more robust software to track and report the financial condition and transactions of the organization,” he said.
Having worked with the Town of Winter Park for a year-and-a-half, Cordsen said he really enjoyed the community and working for the town.
Cordsen’s last day with the town is Jan. 30, after which Finance Technician Morgan Reinhardt will cover the director’s duties until the position is filled, he said. A posting of Winter Park’s open position is going out this week.
It’s about the sixth time the town will have to fill a position since last April, when former Mayor Nick Teverbaugh resigned from his long-standing post.
The town clerk position, the town engineer position, its town manager, mayor and now finance director are positions of recent turnover. The town’s former planner Drew Nelson became Winter Park’s interim town manager and on Tuesday accepted the offer to fill the manager position officially.
“We have had some turnover,” recognized Town Council Member Rusty Thompson. Thompson added it’s not uncommon for any organization.
“We have a strong team in place right now and our council has all the confidence in it,” he said.
