Steven Franks, a financial professional with nearly 20 years of experience, has been named director of business operations for Irving ISD. In his new role, Franks will manage the accounting operations of Irving ISD including bank cash accounts, payroll, receivables, accounts payable, and providing information for both the internal and external auditors.

Franks’ experience ranges from serving as an internal auditor for approximately 10 years to leadership positions in two local school districts. He currently serves as the director of accounting in Carrollton-Farmers Branch (C-FB) ISD where he has worked the past six years. Prior to that position, he was the director of finance for nearly four years in Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD.

In C-FB ISD, Franks oversaw the district’s daily financial operations and managed activity fund operations for all 39 schools. His responsibilities included directing all of the financial and operational management functions, and he was instrumental in realizing more than $1 million in savings for the school district.

“We are extremely fortunate to be able to secure the type of talent that Mr. Franks brings. His position is a very technical and specialized position as he will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of our accounting department,” says Chief Financial Officer Gary Micinski.

“I am honored to be joining such an experienced and accomplished business operations team at Irving ISD,” says Franks. “I will work every day to promote a working environment that emphasizes customer service, teamwork and continuous improvement. I believe this is a great opportunity to continue providing leadership in a career that I love.”
Franks is a Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Certified Internal Auditor (CIA), a certification class instructor for the Texas Association of School Business Officials (TASBO), and he currently serves as secretary for the TASBO accounting and finance committee.

He has earned three degrees from Southern Methodist University: a Bachelor of Business Administration in accounting, a Bachelor of Fine Arts in cinema and a master’s degree in liberal arts.

His first day in Irving ISD is May 15.
