Eric Campbell, who was Planning and Analysis Manager at Pasadena Water and Power since 2013, has accepted an appointment as Santa Clarita Valley Water Agency’s new chief financial and administrative officer.
Monday marked Campbell’s first day on the job, according to a SVC Water statement Monday.
The statement said Campbell, as CFAO, will oversee SCV Water’s financial, risk management, information technology, and administrative activities, and will provide strategic financial leadership for complex water supply and facility transactions.
“We are thrilled to have Eric as SCV Water’s new Chief Financial and Administrative Officer,” Matt Stone, SCV Water general manager, said. “He brings a wealth of knowledge in financial planning, purchasing and budgeting for utilities, and has extensive experience with water rate planning and executing bond transactions.”
Campbell replaces Valerie Pryor who has left the agency as assistant manager to pursue a position outside Santa Clarita Valley.
At PWP, Campbell was responsible for long-term financial planning, operating and capital budgets, capital planning, electric and water rates, purchasing, accounts payable, and timekeeping.
Campbell has also held various finance, risk management and strategic planning positions with the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, Seattle City Light, and Glendale Water and Power.
He also worked with the private multi-national services firm Deloitte, where he assisted Fortune 100 clients with their risk assessment, financial management and reporting tools.
“I am eager to meet my team and get up to speed on the issues,” Campbell said of his new position. “I look forward to establishing an integrated financial, technology, and administrative plan that will enable SCV Water to meet the challenges of providing high quality water to its customers.”
