He is responsible for managing client assets in separate portfolios for cities, counties, insurance and self-insurance organizations, school districts, state and local government agencies, public finance authorities, and universities. Assets under management include operating funds, capital reserves, bond proceeds, and other post-employment benefit (OPEB) funds.
