As first reported on PhillyClout, Mayor Nutter today named Rebecca Rhynhart the next city budget director.
"She was the only person I thought about," Nutter said, when asked if he did an extensive search for the job.
Rhynhart, who currently serves as city treasurer, will take over the job of overseeing the city's $3.9 billion budget on Nov. 1. Before joining the Nutter administration in 2008, she worked for the investment bank Bear Stearns. Her salary will be raised to $150,000, up from $140,000.
Previous budget director Steve Agostini, left the administration last week to become chief financial officer at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management in Washington.
