ANDREW W. MAYLOR
Comptroller of the Commonwealth
In February 2019 Andrew Maylor was sworn in as the 19th Comptroller of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Created in 1922, the Comptroller’s office is a uniquely independent and apolitical overseer of more than $60 billion in governmental and other funding sources and twelve million business transactions annually. In addition, the Comptroller oversees the Commonwealth’s major audit functions ensuring security, transparency, accountability, and service delivery across all branches of state government.
Prior to being appointed as Comptroller, Andrew worked for more than twenty-five years in local government where he served in various executive leadership and senior financial positions. Andrew began his career in the private sector where he spent eight years. Andrew has dedicated his career in the public sector to the stewardship of the financial resources and assets he has been charged with managing. As the Chief Financial Officer and Deputy City Manager of the City of Chelsea, Massachusetts Andrew was known as a key contributor in the financial resurgence of the only Massachusetts municipality that was placed under State Receivership. His work to turn around the $300 million Essex Regional Retirement System, which eliminated the need for state oversight, was predicated on enhancing transparency and restoring the public trust. Most recently Andrew was recognized for his leadership during the 2018 Merrimack Valley Gas Disaster, one of the largest natural gas pipeline catastrophes in the nation’s history. During his career Andrew has also been a strong proponent of life-long learning and succession planning.
The Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) has recognized Andrew’s financial reporting on numerous occasions by awarding organizations he has worked for with the Certificate of Achievement of Excellence in Financial Reporting and the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award.
Andrew is a member of the adjunct faculty in Merrimack College’s Master of Public Affairs Program where he lectures on leadership, public finance, and disaster and emergency management. Andrew earned his B.S. in Management Science from Bridgewater State College, his M.B.A. from Suffolk University, and his M.P.A. from Villanova University.
Andrew and his wife of more than twenty-five years, Paula, live in Peabody and enjoy spending time with their three adult daughters, Marina, Tiana, and Vanessa.
