Garner Welcomes New Finance Director

The Town of Garner has added a new member to its leadership team.

David Beck has joined the Town as its finance director. He takes the reins from Pam Wortham, who retired at the end of June after serving as the Town’s finance director for just over three years.

Beck is a local government finance professional with over 14 years of experience in the field. Before joining the Town of Garner, he served as assistant county manager/finance director for Vance County.

Beck started his local government career with Davie County, eventually rising to the position of assistant finance director. He has extensive local government experience in municipal debt and investment management, budget preparation, capital project management and numerous other areas.

“I am very pleased to have someone of Mr. Beck’s experience join our leadership team,” Garner Town Manager Rodney Dickerson said. “He is highly regarded in the finance realm. I have received many positive comments about his abilities and work ethic.”

Beck holds a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting from N.C. State University and a Master of Science in accounting from East Carolina University. He has successfully completed the municipal and county administration course at the UNC School of Government and is also a Local Government Federal Credit Union (LGFCU) Leading for Results fellow.
