Another SLO finance boss departing
August 28, 2015
Wayne Padilla, director of finance and information technology for the city of San Luis Obispo, has resigned his post.
Padilla told CalCoastNews Friday he will be leaving Sept. 15 to take a job in Fresno in the private sector. Padilla has been commuting from Madera since he accepted the position more than two years ago.
When Padilla took over the position in Jan. 2013, he became the city’s fourth finance director in a period of less than three years.
The previous director Charles Bourbeau left after just one year, citing health problems.
Community Development Director Derek Johnson will swap roles with Assistant City Manager Michael Codron, city officials said in a press release. Johnson will also assume the role of interim director of finance and information technology.
