Lewisville ISD officials announced Scott Wrehe as the district's new chief financial officer Jan. 16.

Beginning in early February, Wrehe will be tasked with leading, implementing and overseeing strategic planning processes as well as ensuring fiscal responsibility for the district in conjunction with the board of trustees and the superintendent. He brings 26 years of educational finance experience throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

“I am excited to welcome Mr. Wrehe to Lewisville ISD,” Superintendent Lori Rapp said in a news release. “He is well-equipped to sustain our district’s focus on resource stewardship based on his years of experience in educational finance. We are fortunate to have him as a part of our LISD family.”

The details

Prior to his new role, Wrehe served as Keller ISD's chief financial officer, where he oversaw the district’s $340 million general fund budget and managed the district’s investments. He also led the district’s budget and finance committee, according to the news release.

Before his work in Keller, Wrehe served as the assistant superintendent for financial services at Carroll ISD. While in that position he provided oversight for the transportation and child nutrition departments, assisted in the passing of the district’s 2017 bond and subsequently oversaw the $208 million bond program.

He has also held positions as a budget coordinator and internal auditor in Fort Worth ISD, the director of accounting in Burleson ISD, and the chief financial officer in Joshua ISD.

Additionally, Wrehe served as a senior auditor before transitioning into educational finance. He is a state-certified public accountant and serves on the Texas Christian University Accounting Advisory Board.

“Lewisville ISD is a destination district, and I am very excited about the opportunity to join this outstanding organization,” Wrehe said in the news release. “I look forward to working with the board of trustees, Dr. Rapp, the district’s leadership team and staff to continue to be good stewards of the district’s resources and to navigate through the financial challenges that all districts are currently facing.”
