Leeann Demouche has been selected as the new Director of Financial Services for the City of Las Cruces. Demouche began her career with the City as a Water Conservation Coordinator with Utilities in 2011. She has also held the positions of Rate and Economic Analyst Manager, Fleet Administrator, Chief Budget Officer. She has served since June 2021 as the Interim Director of Financial Services. Her work history prior to the City of Las Cruces includes work for governments, Texas A&M, and NMSU. She also previously held a position with the Utilities Board, serving as the first chairman for a four-year term.
Demouche says all her positions held within the city have had challenges, but she is especially proud of how she worked with the Fleet Services staff to build up the expertise of the team and helped to address management and financial concerns. "I didn't know anything about fixing vehicles, but during the time at Fleet our team accomplished becoming financially sound, and we improved efficiencies,” Demouche said.
She moved to Las Cruces in 1989 from Corpus Christi, Texas where she was born and raised. She has two daughters and will be celebrating her 40th anniversary with husband Billy next year.
Demouche has an MA in Economics from New Mexico State University.
