Assistant County Manager Ed Finger is leaving Clark County for a job in Colorado.
Finger, one of three assistant county managers, told the Review-Journal on Thursday he took a job in Denver because he has family there.
“It’s just family reasons,” he said. “I’ve had a good time working in Clark County.”
He became an assistant county manager in 2011. He oversees departments that include human resources and employee benefits, elections, fire, information technology and the Clark County Shooting Complex.
In his new job, he’ll be a financial director at a Denver wastewater reclamation district.
He also worked as an assistant city manager in Reno and served as the county’s comptroller and assistant director of finance.
Before working in Nevada, Finger was a finance director in for the city of Thornton, Colo., and a senior auditor for a private firm.
Finger has earned a master’s degree in finance and a bachelor’s degree in business administration, both from the University of Colorado at Denver.
His final day at Clark County isn’t set yet, but it will be sometime in June.
In 2012, Finger’s base salary was $140,504, and he received a total salary and benefits package of $192,514, according to county salary data.
