Tahoe City PUD’s Cindy Gustafson named GM of the Year in California
The Tahoe City Public Utility District’s Cindy Gustafson was named General Manager of the Year by the California Special District Association (CSDA) at their annual conference in October.
Nominations for this award were submitted by special district board members/trustees or district management staff throughout California based on exceptional experience, effectiveness and leadership in his or her district.
Gustafson stood out in all three categories with a tangible track record of success in each during her 25-year tenure with the District.
“It is really an honor to work for such a high performing District, which is a direct reflection of its leadership,” said Ramona Cruz, TCPUD Chief Financial Officer for TCPUD.
Gustafson has held the position of General Manager since 2008. Under her guidance the District has significantly improved its financial position, increased transparency standards, set policy to ensure the future needs of the District are met, and implemented a new strategic plan to name just a few accomplishments.
Her working relationships with local, regional, and State and Federal agencies have allowed the District to secure over $35 million in capital grant funding, $14.5 million since her appointment to General Manager.
These funds have made possible the completion of numerous projects at a significant savings to rate and taxpayers. Her commitment to Tahoe City and the local community is unrivaled. She works tirelessly both inside and outside her role as TCPUD’s General Manager for the benefit of the region.
