CITY AUDITOR SELECTED
Posted: Aug. 22, 2003
Wilmington Mayor James M.
Baker on Aug. 12 announced the selection of Robert B. Wasserbach to
be the next City Auditor. Wasserbach, who is a Certified Public
Accountant, a Certified Internal Auditor, and an attorney, is
currently Senior Tax Manager of the Wilmington Office of PFPC
Incorporated, a subsidiary of PNC Bank. Wasserbach spent many years
at Wilmington Trust Company, rising to Audit Manager before leaving
Wilmington Trust in 1997 to join PFPC.
Wasserbach lives in the
Midtown Brandywine section of the City, holds a Bachelor’s Degree in
Accounting, a Master’s Degree in Taxation from Widener University, a
Juris Doctor Degree from Widener University School of Law, and is
licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania. He was a candidate for
State Auditor in Delaware in 2000 on the Democratic ticket.
“Bob is a very talented,
qualified and competent person who understands the complexities of
the independent auditing functions and the checks and balances that
are important to the solid management of the City’s finances,” Mayor
Baker said today in announcing Wasserbach’s selection as Auditor.
“We look forward to working with Bob so that we can continue taking
a proactive approach to the management of the people’s money.”
Wasserbach’s nomination will
be the subject of a City Council Finance Committee meeting on August
25 before his name is officially considered by the full City
Council. If approved by Council, Robert Wasserbach would assume the
position in early September.
Mayor Baker today also
thanked Mary Kirlin, Acting City Auditor, on behalf of the citizens
of Wilmington, for overseeing the City’s audit functions since she
took the position on an interim basis on March 4 of this year. The
Mayor said Kirlin would return full time to her position as Pension
Coordinator for the Office of City Treasurer Henry Supinski once
Wasserbach is confirmed and assumes the Auditor position.
