Rolling Meadows officials have completed the hiring for two of their top administrative positions with the recent appointment of a new finance director.

City Manager Rob Sabo, who took the helm in January after his hiring by the city council, introduced new Finance Director Molly Talkington at the council meeting Tuesday night.


Talkington was the finance principal for nearly two years and interim controller for a year at the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning. She also had stints as finance director in East Dundee and DeKalb, amid other local government and finance experience for municipalities in Illinois.

She replaces Melissa Gallagher, who left after 15 years last October to become deputy finance director for Lake County government.
