Grant Yutrzenka Appointed Anchorage’s Chief Fiscal Officer
The acting Chief Fiscal Officer for the Municipality of Anchorage can keep the position for the long haul. Grant Yutrzenka has been doing the job since last September, working previously as CFO for the Anchorage Water and Wastewater Utility as well as its assistant general manager.
Mayor Dave Bronson named Yutrzenka as his choice for CFO as of the new year. “Grant’s breadth and depth of experience in management, finance, and accounting, spanning both the public and private sectors, has well-prepared him to serve as the municipality’s next CFO, a role he has ably performed in an acting capacity these last few months,” Bronson says.
Yutrzenka has a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in accounting from UAA. He has more than thirty years of financial and management experience in public accounting, fisheries, and telecommunications, working for Municipal Light and Power, GCI, and UniSea.
He has served on the boards of Anchorage Community Development Authority, Solid Waste Services, Cross Country Alaska, and the Anchorage Junior Nordic League.
