New CBO Named
After an extensive search process conducted by School Services, the Los Gatos -– Saratoga Union High School District has selected Greg Medici as the next Assistant Superintendent/CBO. As the current CBO of St. Helena Unified, a basic aid district with four schools, Mr. Medici is highly qualified for this role. He has managed an operating budget of $25 million and a facilities bond budget of $60 million. Prior to that, he worked at Napa Valley Unified as their business manager. He has also been an attorney, specializing in corporate finance and debt restructuring. Greg has a B.A. in Business Economics from UCLA and a J.D. from Loyola Law School. He also completed the FCMAT CBO Mentor program.
Throughout both rounds of interviews and a site visit to St. Helena, he demonstrated strong communication skills, leadership and a passion for schools and education. He shared that he made the transition from corporate law to education out of a desire to work in an environment where he could make a difference – much like his mother who enjoyed in her career as a teacher and administrator in California public schools. He has toured our district facilities and the communities we serve and is very excited about the opportunity to work and live in the area.
His employment was approved by the Board of Trustees on November 18, 2014 and he will begin work on December 1st.
