Linda Lehman

Rockford City Manager Michael Young is pleased to announce the recent hiring of Ms. Linda Lehman, as the City’s new Finance Director. Linda comes to the City of Rockford after spending ten (10) years as the Finance Director/Treasurer for the City of Cedar Springs. Linda has a Bachelors of Business Administration from Davenport University and a wealth of experience from both the public and private sectors.

“We were looking for a homerun with this hire and we got a grand slam. Linda understands the intricacies of government financing and the unique responsibilities of working in a small town where you often have to wear numerous hats,” said City Manager Michael Young. “In addition to her obvious strong financial skills, Linda will also assist our various departments in a wide variety of projects and programs. Her attention to customer service was also something we were looking for. Customer service is critically important to us, said Young.

As a quality of life community, we strive to create a sense of place here in Rockford and Linda is going to be a great member to our Rockford Team. Linda will begin her new position with the City of Rockford after the Thanksgiving Holiday. Linda’s commitment to the City of Cedar Springs and making sure that she leaves there with the Finance Department in order says a lot about her character. When you see Linda around town, please take a moment to welcome her to our wonderful community.
