Tennessee budget office director Bill Bradley steps down

NASHVILLE — Tennessee’s budget office director is headed into a “senior advisory role.”

Bill Bradley is making the change for “personal reasons” following about three decades of helping manage state finances, Finance Commissioner Mark Emkes announced today.

Emkes has named David Thurman, 45, who has been director of the office of Legislative Budget Analysis since 2007, to succeed Bill Bradley.

Bradley, 64, has headed the state budget division in the Department of Finance and Administration for 14 years, including some of the most difficult economic years in Tennessee history, according to a news release.

“I want to devote more time and energy to family,” said Bradley, who began working for the state 37 years ago and has served as budget director for three governors.

“Working in Gov. Bill Haslam’s administration has been a pleasure, and I am grateful to all who have allowed me to work on the provision of services to the people of Tennessee,” said Bradley.

Thurman has worked in budget analysis for the General Assembly for 14 years and began his career in 1988 as a budget analyst for the division he will now oversee.
