Wimberley ISD officials late last month approved the hire of Moises Santiago as the district’s next Chief Financial Officer, according to a press release.
Santiago was hired to fill the position held by Randall Rau, who has worked as the WISD CFO until Hays CISD hired him in April.
Santiago joins Wimberley ISD with more than 12 years of experience in finance, payroll, investment portfolios, budgeting and personnel management, according to the release.
Santiago most recently worked as CFO for Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District where he served as financial adviser to the superintendent and board of directors, managed a $6 million federal grants budget, oversaw the Transportation and Food Service Departments, and prepared and managed a $46 million general operating budget.
“Good budgets are created with great planning, and great planning will always lead to good results,” Santiago said in a statement.
Santiago is a Texas Association of School Business Officials Registered Texas School Business Administrator. He holds a Bachelor of Business Administrations from Sul Ross University where he graduated Magna Cum Laude. He also holds an Associate of Science and Associate of Arts in Computer Information Systems from Southwest Texas Junior College.
“I’m looking forward to working hard to make sure WISD is a good steward of all the resources at our disposal for the benefit of all the students, families, teachers and community members,” said Santiago. “It is a privilege to work alongside the excellent WISD team in this beautiful community with such friendly residents.”
Santiago will take on the planning for the new fiscal year budget and the on-going 2018 bond projects, along with the daily business affairs of the district. He will supervise the business/payroll office and oversee the Food Service, Transportation, Maintenance and Custodial departments.
“Wimberley ISD is excited to welcome Moises to the District team. He’s already acquainted himself with the rest of the finance department staff and rolled up his sleeves to begin the important work of managing and planning the financial actions of the District,” said Dwain York, WISD Superintendent.
