CCSD Chief Financial Officer Guy Bellville retiring after 26 years

After 26 years as Chief Financial Officer of the Cherry Creek School District, Guy Bellville has announced that he will retire in June of next year.

"It has been an honor and a privilege to work for the one of the finest public education school districts in the nation," Bellville said. "And, while I am looking forward to what's next, I will miss working with the people I have to come think of as my second family."

Bellville joined Cherry Creek Schools in 1991 during the administration of former Superintendent Bob Tschirki. He has since served three more superintendents: Monte Moses; Mary Chesley and current Superintendent Harry Bull. Before coming to Cherry Creek he worked as Controller and Chief Financial officer for the Anchorage (Alaska) School District for 16 years.

Under his leadership, the Fiscal Services department earned annual awards, including the Government Finance Officers Distinguished Budget Presentation Certificate of Achievement for more than 20 years and the Association of School Business Officers Meritorious Budget Certificate of Excellence annually since 1997.

The Cherry Creek School District also has been honored by the Association of School Business Officials International as one of only 23 school districts nationwide to receive the Meritorious Budget Certificate of Excellence for at least 15 consecutive years. The award recognizes school entities that demonstrate excellence and transparency in school budget presentation.

"It has been said many times that Guy is one of only a handful of people in Colorado who fully understands Colorado's Public School Finance Act," Bull said. "It's not unusual for policy makers to call and ask for his expertise."

The Cherry School District's Board of Education praised Bellville and wishes him well.

"Guy's devotion to excellence and his clear understanding of the state's complex system for funding public schools has made it possible for the board to make informed decisions about how to provide the resources needed to ensure that students have the best possible opportunities to succeed," Cherry Creek School Board President Randy Perlis said. "We are very grateful for his long years of service and he will be greatly missed."

David Hart a current director at PFM Financial Advisors LLC, has been selected to serve as the next Chief Financial Officer for the district. Hart also has served as the CFO for Denver Public Schools and the Douglas County School District as well as Manager of Revenue and Treasurer for the City and County of Denver.

"No one can replace Guy, but David's experience and knowledge of public school finance make him the perfect fit for the Cherry Creek School District going forward," Bull said. "We feel very fortunate that he will be joining us."

Hart said he is ecstatic about coming to Cherry Creek Schools.

"It's a very unique opportunity to follow someone with Guy's reputation and tenure," Hart said. "The Cherry Creek School district is highly regarded and is understood to be among the state's leading education institutions."

Hart will start at CCSD on February 1, 2017 to begin the transition before Bellville's departure.
