According to the packet for Thursday’s meeting, Sridhar Ganesan and Michael Werner have applied for the role. They are the only individuals who responded to a call for candidates that had a May 19 deadline. The board will vote by secret ballot Thursday.
Ganesan is president of the Reston Citizens Association and also heads the Mediaworld LLC group that sought to conduct the Tetra/Lake House review. He works as CFO of Planet 3, an exploration-based learning company. In his application letter to the RA Board, he said he believes he has “the technical skills and work experience, as well as commitment to public service in Reston to successfully perform [as treasurer] on the RA Board.”
Werner has been a member of the Reston Association Fiscal Committee since 2014. He is executive vice president of Impexium, a company that develops and sells software to associations. In his letter, he said his background has been in accounting and he believes “that getting involved in the fiscal matters best suits [his] abilities and temperament.”
Former board member Dannielle LaRosa had served as treasurer since 2015. She stepped down from the board effective April 11, and the board voted at its March 23 meeting to put out the call for treasurer applicants. At a meeting April 12, the board voted to retain LaRosa as treasurer until the call for candidates was completed.
LaRosa was eligible to reapply for the position but declined.
