Job Description: 

The City of Doraville, Georgia is seeking an experienced, dynamic, critical thinker who has the essential financial knowledge and skills to be its next Director of Finance. Doraville, with an approximate population of 10,500, is a full-service city (except Fire Rescue and Water and Sewer services which are provided by DeKalb County). Doraville while being considered a small city is experiencing tremendous redevelopment and the renaissance of a large cosmopolitan city. We look back to preserve our history but are surging forward to reach our visualized destiny.

The City of Doraville is known for its diversity, particularly its multicultural character with populations from Asia-Pacific and Latin countries.

The new Doraville chief financial officer will need to enjoy being a “working” leader; which will require the ability to involve his/herself in all detailed aspects of municipal finance while being steadfastly strategic. The desired candidate must have a Bachelor’s degree in finance, accounting, business administration, public administration, economics or related field and seven to ten years of increasingly responsible experience as a senior level public finance manager or private sector executive. A Master’s degree and/or CPA, although not required, is preferred.

All inquiries and applications will be kept confidential until an appropriate time in the selection process. The position will be open until filled; however, resumes will start to be reviewed as they are received. For more information, please visit our website at
