Bruce Marston, our new Finance Director, comes to us with over 25 years of accounting experience across several sectors. Shortly after graduating from Illinois State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting in 1989, Mr. Marston started out in the private sector with his own accounting services business, providing write-up services to small businesses. The business grew to a point where he could move into public accounting by merging his business with a public accounting firm, when he sat for and passed the CPA Exam. Bruce also spent 15 years in local government with the City of Peoria Workforce Development Department and most recently served as CFO for Home Sweet Home Ministries, Inc., a not-for-profit organization serving the homeless in Bloomington, IL. We are pleased to have Bruce join our team, please join us in welcoming him to the City of Pekin.
