Fishers Mayor Scott Fadness has appointed Lisa Bradford city controller. She served under former Controller Oscar Gutierrez, since Fishers’ transition from a town to a city in January 2015. A Pendleton High School graduate, Bradford completed her Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting and Management at Purdue University. Shortly thereafter she also earned her Certified Public Accountant License. Prior to joining the city of Fishers, Bradford served as an assistant tax controller with Duke Realty.
The City of Fishers created the Controller’s office upon becoming a city and has achieved AAA bond rating, the only city in Indiana to have the distinction. Bradford sees more opportunities to educate the public on the role of her team and the importance of a progressive, efficient Controller’s Office.
