After an extensive search and interview process, Matthew Hippen has been hired as Eden Prairie School’s director of finance. Hippen replaces Ron Meyer, who resigned from the district in September.
Hippen is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) and has a bachelor’s degree in accounting from Minnesota State University Mankato. He has been in public and private sector finance for over six years working as a business manager and senior accountant. He was most recently the assistant controller for Edina Public Schools.
“We’re excited for Mr. Hippen to join the Eden Prairie leadership team. Matthew brings a strong technical accounting background with a focus on building trusting relationships and will continue Eden Prairie’s excellence around sound financial practices,” said Executive Director of Business Services Jason Mutzenberger.
Hippen will begin his position in the district on Oct. 29.
