Learn about the Team at City of Lafayette, Louisiana Communications Bonds, including our Interim Chief Financial Officer and LUS Fiber Director.
Lowell Duhon was appointed by Mayor-President Josh Guillory to serve as Interim Chief Financial Officer. Lowell is a familiar face at LCG, beginning his tenure in municipal government as Chief Administrative Officer in 2016. He was then appointed Interim Lafayette Utilities System Director in 2019 and held that position until a permanent director was named in 2022. Considering Duhon’s governmental experience as well as his roles as Chief Financial Officer and financial consultant in the private sector prior to working in government, Mayor-President Josh Guillory said Duhon’s temporary appointment is the right fit until a qualified candidate is selected for the permanent CFO position. “Lowell Duhon is uniquely qualified to lead the Office of Finance and Management as Interim Chief Financial Officer. As CAO, he was responsible for the operational and fiscal management of all departments, and as Interim Utilities Director, he managed Lafayette’s publicly-owned utilities company, the largest department of LCG. He is a leader, prepared, and dedicated to moving the department forward. I have full confidence in his abilities.”
