LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The city's former budget director has been made the new chief financial officer, according to a release from the Mayor's office. 

Daniel Frockt has been serving as interim CFO since mid January, before which he served in the budget director role for 10 years. 

“Daniel is a great leader and looks at the budget process with a very systematic and creative approach,” Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer said. “He was instrumental in planning the FY16 budget, an $903 million spending plan that does not raise taxes and will strengthen physical, economic, educational and social connections across Louisville.”

Frockt is a Louisville native with degrees from the University of Texas, the University of Washington and the University of Pennsylvania. 

Frockt replaced Steve Rowland as CFO in January after Rowland was arrested in January for alcohol intoxication and disorderly conduct. Rowland resigned soon after the incident. 

He has an MBA from the University of Texas and a Master of Education from the University of Washington. 

Aaron Jackson will move into the Budget Director role while Monica Harmon will move into the role of Finance director; both have previous experience with the city.
