Director, Finance and Compliance
David Levine grew up in Sacramento and has over a decade of administrative experience in the public sector. He spent 13 years at the City of Sacramento, where he managed the self-funded Solid Waste Enterprise fund through years of fiscal instability and implemented sustainable long-term funding strategies that mitigated larger fee increases. Additionally, he served as a business lead for the development of the City’s financial system, assisting in the preparation of the annual operating and capital budgets while implementing numerous cost-saving operational efficiencies.
In his role as Director of Finance and Compliance, Mr. Levine serves as the chief financial steward of the College of Continuing Education. He leads day-to-day financial and compliance activities for the college and provides strategic direction and planning in finance and regulatory compliance. As Director, he oversees accounting, budgeting, financial analysis, contracting, procurement, business continuity, risk management, facilities and transportation.
“I am very proud to now be working for the university that was so instrumental in my personal growth and helping others achieve their learning goals.”
David has a lifelong connection to Sac State. As a young boy, he picked up bottle caps and sunflower seeds under the bleachers to pass time during his sister’s collegiate softball games. As a teenager, he spent many hours in the library researching and writing high school term papers. As a young man, he began his undergraduate studies at Sac State and participated in Associated Students — experiences that helped spark his interest in public service. Later, he completed his bachelor’s degree in radio, television and film at California State University, Northridge.
David looks forward to giving back at CCE, applying his knowledge and experience to improve the way we do business and creating new opportunities to enhance lives through continuing education.
