The Municipality of Anchorage has a new Chief Fiscal Officer. 

Mayor Ethan Berkowitz announced on Tuesday that Alex Slivka is the newly appointed CFO for the Muni.

Slivka is making the transition from McKinley Capital Management, LLC, where he has served a number of leadership roles. He is no stranger to the financial industry -- with over 35 years of experience behind his belt. 

"The goals are to support Ethan and the rest of the team," Slivka said. "They've got some great plans over the next several years. And my job is just to help them make sure that they can achieve those goals."

He also cited being familiar with the state and city needs as the reason he was chosen for the position.

Slivka's first day on the job begins October 15.
