Appointed by Livermore City Manager Marc Roberts, Olson is set to officially start in her new position on March 14, according to a statement from the city.

"I am excited for Tina to join our city organization and lend her extensive experience and wealth of knowledge to our team. Her leadership will be an incredible asset to the Administrative Services Department," Roberts said in the statement.

While she started with the city of Pleasanton in 2015, Olson has a total of 30 years of local government experience under her belt. She has spent most of her career in government managing finance departments, but has also managed human resources, information technology, purchasing and housing authority departments.

She also holds a bachelor's degree in economics from the University of California, Santa Cruz and a master's degree in public administration from San Francisco State University.

Prior to joining Pleasanton, Olson worked for the city of Pittsburg as the director of finance and administration for five years. Before that, she worked for the city and county of San Francisco for 15 years in a variety of finance positions, including deputy director of finance and administration for the Port of San Francisco.

In her new position as Livermore's administrative services director, officials said Olson will oversee five divisions: finance, human resources, city clerk, cybersecurity and information technology.

"I am honored to join the city of Livermore, the place I call home," Olson said in the city's statement. "I look forward to working collaboratively within the city organization and with community partners to deliver exceptional services for the Livermore community."

Olson succeeds Doug Alessio who retired in November after nine years at the helm of the Administrative Services Department.
