The Cuyahoga Falls City School District has a new treasurer following a unanimous vote by the Board of Education during a special meeting on Wednesday, April 19.

Justin M. Klingshirn of Avon, a manager for the Ohio Auditor's Office out of Cleveland, was given a contract following a closed-door meeting of the Board that lasted about an hour.

"I think it's a great opportunity for myself and my family," Klingshirn said following the meeting. "I'm looking forward to the challenge and I look forward to working with the superintendent and the Board of Education."

Klingshirn has been a performance project manager for the state auditor since 2011, according to his resume that he provided to the Board. Prior to that time he worked as an operations manager from 2005 to 2011 for The Brickman Group of Avon. Before that, he was an insurance agent for Cornerstone in Independence for part of 2003.

He received his bachelor's degree in business management from Capital University in Columbus. He furthered his education at Ashland University's School of Law and its School of Finance, and he's attended a number of Ohio Association of School Business Officials (OASBO) training seminars.
