COLUMBIA — City Manager Mike Matthes announced Friday the appointment of Greg Slinkard as the city's new internal auditor.

Slinkard, 55, is from Jefferson City and has worked for the Missouri auditor's office for 30 years. He will retire from his position there as audit manager on July 1. Slinkard begins his job as the city's internal auditor on July 11.

"I saw this opportunity come up and that it needed to be filled, and I thought it might be a good fit," Slinkard said of his recent appointment.

Slinkard's new job involves reviewing the city’s financial decisions and practices. He will have access to employee benefits and an annual salary of $60,000, and will report directly to Matthes.

Former internal auditor John Blattel has been handling the responsibilities of two positions since February, when he started his position as city finance director.

Slinkard graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City with a bachelor’s degree in business administration and is a certified public accountant and certified internal auditor.
