Gayle H. Robertson, a certified public accountant, was selected as Carson City’s next treasurer Thursday morning by the Carson City Board of Supervisors.
Robertson was selected by a 3-1 vote, with Supervisor Brad Bonkowski abstaining, over former supervisor John McKenna and City Finance Director Nick Providenti.
Robertson said she most recently worked at Pro Group Captive Management of Carson City in management as captive controller and before that worked in public accounting with Neddenriep & Associates, LLC, of Minden. From 2007 to 2012, she had her own CPA practice. Prior to being self-employed, she was with Allbritten/Slates CPA, LLC, of Carson City and Freeman & Williams, LLP, also of Carson City.
In addition, she served in 1999 and 2000 as a member of the Nevada State Board of Equalization, she said, and was accounting manager for Resource Concepts., Inc. of Carson City from 1994-1997. She is a graduate of the University of California, Davis, with a bachelor’s in economics and did graduate classes in accounting and taxation at the University of Nevada, Reno.
Among her references was one from Mark Beauchamp of Shaheen Beauchamp Builders, LLC, in Carson City.
In citing her most recent experience, Robertson detailed management and related skills.
“As Captive Controller,” she wrote, “I was responsible for monitoring the cash flow and reconciling the investment accounts each company had at various brokerages. The investment goals focused on safety, liquidity, and return on investment.” She said Pro Group managed approximately 45 captive insurance firms. She said each was required to have an audit and two actuarial studies done annually.
She will take over for Al Kramer, who now is the investment deputy treasurer with Nevada state government.
Robertson will fill the term as an appointee. She will have to run in 2018 for a full, four-year term.
