Mayor Tommy Battle announced today City of Huntsville Finance Director Randy Taylor will be moving to the Huntsville-Madison County Airport Authority as its new Chief Financial Officer. Taylor, who joined the City in 1998, will officially depart September 1.

“We are pleased Randy has the opportunity to work with our partners at the Airport Authority,” said Mayor Battle. “As a strong fiscal conservative, I appreciate Randy working with me since I took office to cut unnecessary spending and provide maximum return for our taxpayer dollars. As a result, this administration has earned six triple-A credit ratings.”

Mayor Battle appointed Community Development Director Ken Benion, a Certified Public Accountant, as acting Finance Director.

“I have enjoyed my time with the City and am grateful to Mayor Battle and previous administrators for the opportunity to serve the public,” said Taylor. “I welcome the challenges ahead in my new position with the Airport Authority.”
