(disclaimer: he’s not the cute one in the yellow dress😊)
My name is Ryan Bailey and I am the Finance Director/Treasurer for the Village of Hartland, WI. I am also the Village of Hartland Ex-Officio Board Member for the Hartland Chamber of Commerce. I have been Finance Director/Treasurer at the Village of Hartland since November of 2011 and have been a Board Member with the Chamber of Commerce since 2014. I’ve lived in the Lake Country area my entire life. I grew up in Pewaukee and graduated high school in 1998 from Waukesha North. I graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in 2002 with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Finance, and from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee in 2007 with a Master of Science degree in Accounting. In 2010, I successfully passed all portions of the State of Wisconsin exam to become a Certified Public Accountant.
Prior to my time at the Village of Hartland, I was a Senior Accountant/Lead Auditor for the audit firm Baker Tilly, formerly known as Baker Tilly Virchow Krause for five years. After that, I was the Accounting Manager for the City of New Berlin for two years. I’ve always enjoyed working in the public sector, and loved the appeal of working for a community like Hartland.
Outside of my professional career, time with my wife, daughter and family is what I cherish most. I’m also an avid sports fan. I enjoy attending or watching just about any sport. All through my childhood years I played soccer, baseball and basketball. Nowadays, I enjoy playing golf during the warm weather months and bowling during the cold weather months.
