North Las Vegas Names New Finance Director

Posted: Updated:

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. -- North Las Vegas has picked a new city finance officer and city hall sources tell the I-Team they hope it's a game changer. 

Darren Adair, who is currently the chief financial officer for Switch Communications, plans to step down and take the North Las Vegas position. Adair is a North Las Vegas resident and has business contacts with business owner and new Mayor John Lee.

Adair helped build Switch into a multi-billion dollar company. City hall sources tell the I-Team that Adair wants to take the North Las Vegas finance position as "a public service."

This comes after the I-Team broke the story of North Las Vegas finance director Al Zochowski being fired last week. City hall sources told the I-Team Zochowski was fired for "major accounting errors" currently under internal investigation. Zochowski denies the claims.

Adair's appointment to be the city's new finance director is up for approval at the next city council meeting.
