Valley Metro has named Mary Modelski internal auditor and Paula Novacek controller.

Modelski has more than 18 years of experience auditing business processes, operational efficiency and effectiveness, agency officials said in a press release.

She previously served as division chief for internal audit and small local emerging business certification for Alameda County, California.

Novacek will serve as controller for Valley Metro's finance division. She has more than 24 years in governmental accounting and auditing, including a stint as assistant finance director of Mesa, Arizona.

"With the surge in transit growth over the past decade and expansion of service to meet future rider demand, these positions will ensure fiscal accountability and transparency," said Scott Smith, Valley Metro's chief executive officer. "Their depth of knowledge and experience in auditing and accounting is extremely beneficial in our daily financial operations."
